Inter-Governmental Action Group against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA)
is organising a Regional Seminar on Criminal
Asset Recovery from 12 to14 December, 2011 at the National Assembly in Praia,
- Framework for Asset Recovery: The Role of Intelligence in Asset Recovery;
- Implementing the Asset Recovery Provisions in relevant International Instruments: Issues, challenges and way forward;
- Enhanced Monitoring of Politically Exposed Persons: A Panacea to Corruption; and
- Ensuring Transparency and Public Accountability.
It is expected that the Seminar will enhance the capacity of the participants to recover proceeds of crime in the region, set the stage for the adoption of national and regional asset recovery strategies and policies and ultimately facilitate in combating transnational organised criminal activities, particularly corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing.
