A second activity kicks off in Turkiye this week. Along with our workshop for NPOs organised in Istanbul, the EU Global Facility is delivering a training for law enforcement officials in Ankara.
Held under the title “Recognising the nexus between Criminal and Terrorist networks and how they utilise profit from both legal and Illegal Activities”, the training involves different actors from the penal chain including MASAK (Financial Intelligence Unit), Police, Gendarmerie and the Judiciary.
Alongside our Key Expert on Law Enforcement Liam Ennis, two Irish experts will tackle topics related to terrorism in the financial context, namely understanding structures of terrorist groups, links between terrorist business models and crime and lone actor terrorism, among others.
The activity will actively involve the participants, who will be tasked with solving a fictitious case study related to terrorism, crime and money laundering in a designated context.
This workshop is part of a series of technical assistance activities carried out by the EU Global Facility in Turkiye, as agreed as part of the workplan designed with the Turkish authorities in 2022.
