[15-16 July 2015] Training seminar for rapporteurs 

The Conference of the Parties to CETS No. 198 conducted a two day  training seminar for Rapporteurs in Strasbourg from 15 to 16 July 2015. This event brought together 18 law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, financial intelligence units and judicial co-operation practitioners  from 15 State Parties to the Convention, as well as Council of Europe secretariat representatives. Trainers included Mr Paolo Costanzo, scientific expert to the Conference of the Parties, Mr Boudewijn Verhelst, MONEYVAL scientific expert for law enforcement aspects and representatives of the Secretariat of the Conference of the Parties to CETS No. 198.  

The training consisted of presentations on the relevant provisions  of the Convention as well as on the process and procedures of the Conference of the Parties and on the role of rapporteurs. A case study enabled practitioners to test their understanding and knowledge of the aspects covered in the context of an assessment by the Conference of the Parties and to experience potential challenges arising in this process. On the last day of the training, they presented their preliminary findings on the implementation of the Convention by a fictitious State Party and exchanged views on a number of legal and practical issues arising in this context.  

The State Partiesí trained experts will be expected to act as Rapporteurs for the future assessments of the Parties to the Convention and provide a substantial contribution to the work of the Conference of the Parties in the forthcoming years.
