An online consultation workshop to discuss the development of a capacity building plan on financial investigation techniques took place on 5 May 2021.
The objective of the workshop was to determine the needs and priorities of institutions and organisations involved in the detection, investigation and prosecution of economic crimes as part of their support to strengthen their capacities in conducting financial investigations and enhancing the cooperation between the different stakeholders. Based on identified needs, the Council of Europe and INLUCC will develop a capacity building plan on financial investigation techniques by undertaking a series of targeted multi-actor training activities in this area.
Representatives of beneficiary institutions participated and contributed to the discussions including the Tunisian Anti-Corruption Authority (INLUCC), the Tunisian Committee for Financial Analysis (CTAF), the General Directorate of Customs, the Ministry of Interior, the Financial, Economic and Judicial Pole, the Brigade on investigation and fight against tax evasion, the Unit for international information exchange and the General Directorate of Taxes at the Ministry of Finance.
This activity was organised by the Tunisian Anti-corruption Project (TAC) in cooperation with INLUCC and within the framework of the European Union and Council of Europe joint programme “Project to support independent bodies in Tunisia” (PAII-T).
