  • used repeatedly in Tina Rosenberg's "The Haunted Land" to refer to sanctions or penalties designed to purge former party members, secret service agents and informants from public office after the fall of communism in various Easter bloc countries. This noun form doesn't appear in most dictionaries, but is presumably derived from the verb "lustrate".
