The EU AML-CFT Global Facility will deliver a Table Top Training Event to AML-CFT agencies and their partners in Mauritius on 23-24 November 2021.
The workshop will use a live exercise involving CT officers, law enforcement and prosecutors in relation to exploiting fast time financial intelligence in the investigation of counter terrorism.
The exercise will take the form of a Table Top Training Event where attendees will be facilitated through a realistic terrorist simulation towards the stated objectives below. The simulation will outline a large terrorist event and will then focus on developing financial investigation and intelligence activity that will support the simulated criminal justice event. The exercice will be based on the geography and local economy of the Mauritius environment
The learning facilitation will lead the participants towards the identification of the financial footprint that pre-and-post terrorism attack activity leaves. Further participant analysis will allow for the development of an immediate financial investigative action plan that will steer and advise the local Mauritian authorities should an incident occur.
Ultimately, the activity seeks to support Mauritian partners to improve their capacities to:
- – Prevent and detect the funding of terrorism – utilising the ITAC model.
- – Support the investigation of a terrorist attack through the utilisation of Financial Intelligence including ‘crimes in action’ utilising a Post Incident Financial Investigation Actions Plan.
- – Outline the financial behaviours that indicate operational terrorist financing to aid preventative and post incident investigations.
