Financial Investigative Techniques Session 11 (Jun 3-7, 2024)

From June 3-7, 2024, the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) Bangkok and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collaborated to organize Session 11 of the Financial Investigative Techniques training in Bangkok, Thailand. A total of 36 law enforcement investigators and prosecutors from 8  subscribing countries took part in this course.

The training course was designed to be interactive and driven by the participants themselves. It was centered around using financial investigative techniques to detect, investigate, and resolve cases of fraud and public corruption. Participants were taught how to track the money trail, identify assets for confiscation, and calculate the amount of illegal proceeds. The IRS instructors drew on the participants' knowledge and applied it to financial investigations. To create and deliver this course, international standards from the United Nations, the Financial Action Task Force, and other inter-governmental bodies were utilized.
