Тhe work of judges, prosecutors and other investigative bodies is considered crucial for stable institutions, transparency and the rule of law, which are the pillars of an effective system for combating money laundering and terrorist financing.
In June 2018, the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) published the FATF President's Paper: Anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing for judges and prosecutors. The paper is based on information gathered from regional workshops that brought together over 400 judges and prosecutors from more than 150 countries around the world to discuss experiences, challenges and best practices in financial crime investigations.
The publication intends to support the efficiency of money laundering and terrorist financing investigations and prosecutions and confiscation of illicit proceeds. The paper was also prepared with the idea of improving international cooperation and understanding the current methods of laundering the proceeds of organized crime and the financing of terrorism. In this way, the AML/CFT institutions will learn about about examples of good practice in fighting money laundering and terrorist financing.
As part of the Project of EU Support to Serbia in Prevention of Money Laundering, the Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering will organize workshops and round tables, intended for prosecutors, inspectors and judges. The Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering is the main beneficiary of this project which is implemented by a consortium led by KPMG.
