The workshop, which is supported by the EU in Jordan, will bring together, during three days, on the one hand, representatives of these oversight bodies (court of auditors, inspection services, anticorruption authorities) and, on the other hand, representatives of the justice sector (prosecutions, criminal courts) as well as a representative of the Financial Intelligence Unit.
The countries invited to this regional seminar are Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine.
The workshop will aim at:
1) Bringing together players who are often isolated or without much ressources in the face of the complexity of financial crime, who have not yet acquired this culture of forensic audit and who do not have the necessary inter-institutional synergy.
2) Strengthening and optimising the means and strategies for combating financial crime and corruption in all its forms affecting public funds and management.
3) Identifying, at the end of the exchanges and discussions held in the workshop, a set of recommendations to strengthen the cooperation both at the inter-institutional level and at the regional level and thus to optimise the practices and strategies implemented by the forensic audit.
The logic underlying this workshop is the following:
1) Analysis of the current situation, actions and challenges (general and regional of the different actors)
2) A first solution: forensic audit as an investigation technique for the benefit of the control bodies and authorities
3) A second solution: forensic audit as a cooperation strategy for the benefit of criminal courts
4) Regarding the challenges and future threats: recommendations resulting from the discussions of the workshop with an inter-institutional and regional dimension
