During the period from 03 to 05 April, CARICC hosted a Regional Workshop to tackle illicit financial flows related to transnational organized crime.
A three-day workshop was organized jointly with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), at the initiative of CARICC, under the Subprogramme 2, “International/Regional Cooperation on Legal Matters” of the Regional Programme for Afghanistan and Neighboring Countries.
The event was attended by representatives of the prosecutor’s office, Ministries of Interior, finance services, financial intelligence units of Afghanistan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Pakistan, Poland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, as well as international organizations, such as UNODC, European Union Action Against Drugs and Organized Crime (EU-ACT), and the Eurasian Group for Combating Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism (EAG).
Experts from CARICC shared their initiatives in the field of counteracting drug trafficking and new approaches to undermining the economic foundations of the drug-related business.
During three days, participants to the event discussed the current legislation of participating countries to the workshop in the field of financial investigations, asset recovery that were illegally transferred abroad, as well as certain issues and solutions in this area within the framework of international cooperation.
