This e-training was the third and final in a series of three weekly training designed for the prosecution service of the United Arab Emirates.
This training focused on money laundering and its link to predicate offence, investigation of money laundering cases and the kind of specific litigation skills required from prosecution.
It also touched upon:
- The importance of having prosecutors with specialised expertise on money laundering crimes (i.e. investigation, prosecution and knowledge of adjudication)
- Evidence admissibility and how to assess the value of evidence
- Data secrecy, confidentiality and privacy regarding ML criminal proceedings
Started in August 2021, the series of judiciary training targeted representatives of the prosecution services and covered the general AML/CFT requirements and standards in this regard. Most specifically, it focused on the operation of mutual evaluations by the FSRB and the IOs relevant to the target group, as well as the challenges and best practices regarding the prosecution and adjudication of AML/CFT cases by the national jurisdictions.
