Monaco took part in the first international forum on the identification and recovery of criminal assets on February 27 and 28 in Rome.
The Financial Action Task Force and Italy’s Guardia di Finanza organised the event, with the support of the OECD.
The first international forum on the identification and recovery of criminal assets brought together more than 300 experts from agencies and government services from around a hundred countries, whose commitment the Guardia di Finanza president hailed in the fight against transnational organised financial crime.
A Monegasque delegation, made up of representatives of SICCFIN, the Judicial Services Department and the Department of Public Security, participated in this forum, particularly on the prospect of improving cooperation with the competent foreign authorities in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism and to promote good practices in this area.
Monaco’s participation was also part of the implementation of the recommendations of the Moneyval committee on the Principality of Monaco.
