Jakarta (Indonesia), 23 September 2022 - UNODC collaborated with the Indonesia Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to organize a Training on Cross-border Financial Investigation which took place in Jakarta in two sessions, in September 2022. The training gathered 57 government officials from the Indonesia Corruption Eradication Commission, the Attorney General's Office, the Indonesian Police, and the Indonesian Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center.

The training focused on asset recovery, non-conviction-based confiscation, financial investigations, asset management, organized crime, and corporate criminal liability. The objective of the training was to support Anti-Corruption and Law Enforcement Authorities in Indonesia to develop the ability to “follow the money” in a cross-border corruption investigation and improve their capacity in asset tracing and recovery. Asset recovery can have a significant impact in corruption cases, in addition restitution of money and property to victims of corruption can provide a measure of justice to those affected by the crime.

The participants learned from case studies and exercises during the training. This training was designed in consistency with the national context and international practices.

The training has strengthened participants' understanding of basic financial analysis and cross-border investigation, a need that was also high lighted by the review of implementation of the UNCAC in Indonesia. The participants also had the opportunity to network to strengthen domestic coordination and cooperation.

This training was part of activities funded by the Ministry of Justice of Government of the Republic of Korea. Footage (where available) and written summaries of UNODC events are publicly available via our website.
