We were pleased to deliver and anti-corruption and organised crime course for representatives from Uzbekistan which included Prosecutors, Investigators and a representative from the Central Bank.
The course was delivered on behalf of the UK NCA & British Embassy and was the first time that our immersive training software program called View360 Global had been used. The interactive scenario driven by the software enabled small groups of representatives using a laptop on which media feeds were provided to immersive themselves in a scenario that addressed corruption, fraud, terrorism, cash smuggling and money laundering typologies. The British Ambassador, Mr Chris Allan also attended and was able to view the training software in action.
We would like to thank the General Prosecutors Office for use of their first-class training facilities and the NCA staff at the British Embassy in Tashkent, for their excellent organisation of this well supported event.
