The EU Global Facility launches its first technical assistance activity in #Bahrain 🇧🇭
Today, the EU Global Facility joins hands with the Financial Intelligence National Centre of Bahrain (FIU) to deliver its very first bilateral training to the new partner state, following an official request submitted a few months back.
The three-day event on the theme of “Terrorist Financing – Initiating Investigations & Enhanced Awareness Workshop” will include sessions on understanding terrorist structures, tackling various financing methods, combating money laundering typologies, and strategies for effective asset recovery. Participants will also engage in scenario-based learning to gain practical insights into countering terrorist financing and money laundering.
“The workshop aims to enhance investigative methods, addressing challenges from virtual assets and social media. It will help participants maximise evidential opportunities in both civil and criminal courts,” explained our Key Expert on Law Enforcement/Intelligence Liam Ennis.
“Our emphasis lies in using all available investigative tools, with a special focus on financial documentation as primary, difficult-to-dispute evidence. We also prioritise early asset identification, seizure, confiscation, and disposal to reduce risk effectively.”
