UNODC contributes to Kazakhstan's anti-corruption practitioners in financial investigations and asset recovery

UNODC conducted practical training on "Financial Investigations and Asset Recovery" for specialists from the central office of the Anti-Corruption Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan on 10-12 May 2023.

This training was the logical continuation of the systemic work conducted by UNODC to support partners in combatting money laundering and the recovery of proceeds of crime. UNODC conducts a series of training sessions for the central offices and regional departments of law enforcement agencies of Kazakhstan involved in financial investigations and asset recovery.

The main objectives of the practical training are to strengthen the capacity of state authorities to conduct financial investigations and asset recovery and to suppress illicit financial flows from criminal activities, making lives of people safer and secure.  

Training participants noted that the practical part of the workshop helped them improve their skills and strengthen their knowledge in anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism, financial investigations and assets recovery. The participants were particularly interested in developing investigation plans, subject profiles, analysing and drawing up financial flow charts, preparing an evidence matrix, and using international cooperation channels. The international experience and practical measures presented by the experts broadened their understanding of financial investigations.

The event was organised with the expert support from the UNODC Global Programme Against Money Laundering, Proceeds of Crime and the Financing of Terrorism (GPML) to implement the UNODC Programme for Central Asia 2022-2025, with financial support from the US Department of State's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
