From 13 to 14 June, the OSCE Mission to Serbia, together with the Criminal Investigation Directorate of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) organised the final of four regional workshops for police and prosecutors on financial crime and asset forfeiture laws in Kragujevac. The purpose of the workshops was to improve the capacities of both police and prosecutors in investigating and prosecuting financial crime and corruption.
The participants discussed ways of prosecuting financial crime and corruption, exchanged experiences on the matter and explored ways to improve co-operation and workflow in financial investigations. A total of 80 police officers from all 27 Serbian police districts and prosecutors from the country’s four appellate prosecution offices participated in the workshops. This activity is part of the Mission’s broader efforts to develop the capacity of police, prosecution and judiciary to combat transnational, organized and serious crime.
