North Macedonia strengthens capacities for financial investigations
Slovenian development aid to the Republic of North Macedonia is being successfully continued, with adjustments for following measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. A workshop for rule of law agencies on the financial investigation was held in North Macedonia from 23 to 27 November 2020. A few Slovenian and Macedonian representatives also participated remotely.
At the workshop, participants, with a practical approach and through case studies, focused on the area of data needed to conduct financial investigations. The workshop ended on 28 November 2020, with a meeting of the heads of the bodies responsible for financial investigations. A feasibility study on improvements in data needed for financial investigations in North Macedonia is also under preparation.
The project is part of programme activities of Slovenia’s Development Cooperation Programme financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and carried out together with the State Prosecution, Financial Administration, Ministry of Interior and Police of the Republic of Slovenia.
