In accordance with its strategic goal and the desire to achieve the criteria for EU membership, North Macedonia is seriously committed to making progress and increasing efficiency in the fight against organized crime and corruption. Slovenia has been helping North Macedonia on this path in the field of financial investigations through international development assistance since 2017.
Within the framework of this support, Slovenian experts will this time pass on their knowledge to their Macedonian colleagues by advising them on the development of procedures for the implementation of the Common Guidelines for Financial Investigations, which were adopted in 2019 by the Macedonian institutions responsible for financial investigations, based on Slovenian experience.
The consultation will take place on 28-29 March 2022 in North Macedonia, and will be attended by representatives of the authorities, which in North Macedonia carry out financial investigations: Ministry of the Interior, Customs Administration, Financial Police Office and the State Prosecutor’s Office.
The project is part of the program activities of international development cooperation, financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and implemented in cooperation with the State Prosecution, Financial Administration, Ministry of the Interior and the Police of the Republic of Slovenia.
