OPDAT - Anti-corruption and Asset Recovery Course

Last but certainly not least, today marks the conclusion of the final chapter in this year's Anticorruption Series program.
The Anti-corruption and Asset Recovery course, instructed by OPDAT, catered to senior criminal justice practitioners, imparting crucial skills on investigating and prosecuting corruption and related money laundering cases with a nexus toward combating violent extremism. This comprehensive course provided participants with a strategic framework for prosecuting corruption, money laundering, and related offenses. Emphasis was placed on strategies for combating corruption and recovering assets laundered overseas, underscoring the importance of competent bodies and actors independent of political interference. Fundamental technical issues were addressed, including collecting domestic financial records, gaining cooperation from lower-level co-conspirators, witness and whistleblower protection, asset recovery techniques, and the critical importance of prosecutorial and judicial independence.
Given the interconnected nature of corruption, overseas money laundering, transnational organized crime, and terrorism, the organization of this course aimed to acknowledge and address this complexity by presenting these topics in a unified course.
Congratulations to the participants from Armenia, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, and Uzbekistan!
