The European project against organised crime and drug trafficking in Peru carries out training for Peruvian judicial personnel together with other European Public Prosecutor's Offices
The project against drug trafficking and organised crime in Peru has held an event to inaugurate a series of inter-institutional workshops in which the Judiciary, the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Peruvian National Police will participate. The online workshops aim to strengthen coordination between these bodies on issues related to the fight against drug trafficking and organised crime.
Specifically, cybercrime, international cooperation, computer forensics, money laundering, people trafficking, among others, will be addressed. The project, funded by the European Union and managed by FIIAPP, is accompanied by specialists from the Ministry of the Interior and Ministry of Justice in Spain, as well as the French Ministry of the Interior, the Italian Ministry of Justice and the Romanian Police.
The first two workshops have already been launched, these modules are aimed at cybercrime and international cooperation and seek to involve and interrelate sixty Peruvian judges, prosecutors and police officers with the objective they acquire the necessary skills in these issues and in finding solutions to joint problems which, to the same extent, affect the three Peruvian institutions.
The cybercrime module has, therefore, focused on new techniques for investigating payment and online shopping fraud, as well as social networks, child pornography and web pages. For its part, the international cooperation module has imparted essential theoretical knowledge on international judicial cooperation to later apply it in practice through simulations and real cases. The cases will be presented with the aim of analysing possible mistakes made, seeking solutions and proposing recommendations to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system.
