ICAR conducts joint workshop on recovering the proceeds of crime from wildlife and forest offences and money laundering in Uganda
From 23 to 27 February 2015, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Asset Recovery Inter-Agency Network of South Africa (ARINSA), the Government of Uganda and the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) carried out a joint workshop for prosecutors, investigators and other relevant stakeholders on the recovery of proceeds of crime from wildlife and forest offences and money laundering in Entebbe, Uganda. The training programme was designed to enhance the skills of the participants to trace and recover the proceeds of crime emanating from such offences and money laundering.
Alongside topical lectures, the programme incorporated several practical training exercises whereby trainees were taught how to apply for search warrants to obtain financial documents, to prepare production and restraining orders, as well as requests for mutual legal assistance, to draft indictments in money laundering cases, to develop legal arguments for the preparation of criminal and civil forfeiture/confiscation orders and finally to effect these orders’ enforcement.
Some 40 participants from a number of relevant government agencies of Uganda attended the training workshop.
