Lawrie Day, Muthupandi Ganesan and Miroslava Milenovic delivered a 2-day seminar on the 17th & 18th February for asset recovery practitioners that was attended by representatives from the General Prosecutors Office, the Economic Crime Police and the State Financial Intelligence Service (FIU). The seminar, which was funded by the British Embassy and the UK National Crime Agency, provided an update on international best practice in the fields of financial investigation.
Miroslava Milenovic was joined by Rod Stokes and is currently delivering a 10-day Financial Investigation course to representatives of the same agencies. The course is based on promoting international best practice in the areas of proactive and reactive financial investigation, blending investigative skills from common and civil law jurisdictions. The second week of the course focuses on a purely interactive exercise where the participants are provided authentic financial documents in order to develop financial intelligence to identify money flows, offshore money laundering structures & typologies and how to use international cooperation mechanisms.
