Summary

On 11 and 12 December the Mission to Serbia organized a seminar on offshore jurisdictions for economic crime investigators as part of the project “Enhancing capacities of the Serbian police to fight corruption.” Participants learned about the use of offshore financial centres for the purpose of money laundering, as well as about investigative indicators and specific techniques to trace offshore money flows.

Participants also discussed technical measures of effective police co-operation in order to prevent the misuse of offshore jurisdictions to launder money. The event gathered participants from police, prosecution and the Ministry of Finance’s Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering (APML). The training specifically focused on practical and interactive exercises, and is part of the Mission’s overall efforts to enhance the capacity of the police to combat corruption.
