The U.S.  Supports Collaboration Among Law Enforcement in Financial Investigations

Five Malian delegates participated in a training session on Interagency Cooperation in Financial Investigations with the support of the United States Embassy in Mali. This training program was organized by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). The session took place at the West Africa Regional Training Center (RTC) in Accra, Ghana, from March 2-6, 2020.

The course focused on sharing resources and creating partnerships in order to identify and deal with cases of financial misappropriation. Participants developed techniques to achieve cooperation, track money, identify assets to be confiscated, and calculate the amount of illegal proceeds. This program targeted supervisors responsible for enforcing financial laws, including the police, tax officials and other supervisors responsible for making decisions regarding financial investigations.
