The training activity is part of the project to fight organised crime and drug trafficking in Peru being managed by FIIAPP and financed by the European Commission.
During the month of May, at the facilities of the National Police of Peru, the course entitled ‘Investigative Techniques for Money Laundering Cases‘ was held.
The course was part of the project to fight organised crime and drug trafficking in Peru, which is financed by the European Commission and managed by the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP). The objective of the training was to transmit to the students a series of basic aspects of the investigation of money laundering, such as the methodology to be followed in investigations, the different circumstances under which theses criminal activities take place, and the information sources that can be consulted to determine assets and operations used by the targets of investigations.
During the course, the students were made aware of the importance of money laundering investigations and of the need for coordinated work with judicial and prosecutorial institutions, as well as the specialisation required by investigators in crimes related to money laundering.
In addition, the importance, given their rank as intermediate and senior officers in the National Police of Peru, of transferring the knowledge and methodologies acquired in the course to their subordinates was stressed.
The attendees also worked on a practical case on how to carry out an investigation, which databases to consult, and how to carry out interrogations.
