North Macedonia – Financial investigations
The project is aimed at further enhancing North Macedonia’s capabilities in financial investigations to successfully combat organised crime, serious forms of crime and corruption, and at the effective implementation of the EU acquis in Chapter 24. Financial investigations are an important tool in the fight against crime because we can prevent the continuance of commiting criminal offences with the confiscation of proceeds of crime and property of illegal origin.
The project ‘North Macedonia – Financial investigations’ has been developed on the success and experience of past activities in the effort to strengthen capacities of North Macedonia to fight organised and serious crime and corruption.
The project ‘Support to Macedonia in accession to the EU in the Chapter 24 – financial investigations’ included a range of activities in the period from 2016 to the year 2018. The exchange of experience in financial investigations was implemented through workshops, individual coaching and the development of training programme with selected cases from Slovenian practice. The project was conducted in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior/Police, Specialised State Prosecutor’s Office and Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia.
