On 26 and 27 March 2018, the Council of Europe hosted the workshop on money laundering, terrorist financing and asset recovery for judges and prosecutors co-organised by the MONEYVAL Secretariat, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and supported by the Economic Crime and Cooperation Department. The workshop “Experiences, challenges and best practices” brought together more than 100 participants from 43 states and territories from Europe and Central Asia. It served as a platform for discussing challenges and exchanging experiences with investigating and prosecuting money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as with depriving criminals of ill-gotten gains. Participation of authorities from Albania, Georgia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan was insured through the funding provided by the Joint CoE/EU Projects, and notably by the Programmatic Cooperation Framework in the Eastern Partnership Countries (PGG) “Fight against corruption and fostering good governance; fight against money-laundering” and another Western Balkan initiative, “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey”. Priority areas for further improvement identified during the workshop will be reflected in upcoming technical assistance activities of the Economic Crime and Cooperation Division across Europe, Central Asia, and North Africa.
