iPROCEEDS-2: Series of Training on Financial Investigation, Virtual Currencies and Darknet for police and prosecutors in the South East Europe and Türkiye finalised

With the Training Course on Financial Investigation, Virtual Currencies and Darknet that took place during 25-27 May 2022 in Skopje, North Macedonia, iPROCEEDS-2 project, a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe, has finalised the series of Financial Investigation Training in the South East Europe region and Türkiye.

 

The iPROCEEDS-2 project has launched at the beginning of this year a series of Training Courses on Financial Investigation during which we received good feedback from the participants regarding the practical explanation of the blockchain analysis used during this training along with other issues raised, such as different Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASP) and the way citizens own and trade cryptocurrencies.

 

The Darkweb is becoming increasingly a place where illegal activity thrives and criminals function in perceived anonymity. Reportedly, almost 30% of hidden services on Tor relate to some form of illicit activity, such as selling illicit drugs, weapons, compromised data, counterfeit documents, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and other illicit products.

The iPROCEEDS-2 will continue to support the criminal justice institutions in the South East Europe region and Türkiye in strengthening their capacities in cybercrime and electronic evidence, by focusing on parallel financial investigations and intelligence, as well as looking more closely into the matters of virtual currencies and Darknet investigations.
