Support to Macedonia in accession to the EU in the Chapter 24 – financial investigations

In a two-year project of the Official Development Cooperation Programme of the Republic of Slovenia we will further strengthen capacities of Macedonia to fight organised and serious crime and corruption.

Since the main motive of perpetrators of organised crime as well as means for their functioning, is to gain proceeds, one of the main responsibilities of Macedonian law enforcement in the accession to the EU is to strengthen capacities for financial investigation, confiscation, temporary insurance and seizure of the proceeds from crime and property of illegal origin, already in the pre-trial phase. In this way the accused has less manoeuvre space for affecting witnesses and eventual bribery of judges and proceeds from crime can no longer be used in future for the preparation or conduct of criminal acts.

The exchange of experience in financial investigations is implemented through 3 workshops, individual coaching and the development of training programme with selected cases from Slovenian practice. The project is conducted in the cooperation with the Ministry of Interior/Police, Specialised State Prosecutor’s Office and Financial Administration of the Republic of Slovenia.

We are contributing to every aspect of project Implementation, especially by:

– Coordination the input from the beneficiaries to develop exchanges of experiences tailored to their needs and profiles;
– Examination of training and organisational change management methodologies and tools and use them to create interactive and hands-on workshops;
– (In the development of the content), assistance in extracting relevant experiences of Slovenian practitioners;
– Run brainstorming to select and analyse cases and transfer findings into workshops’ programme, coordinate contributions of Slovenian peers and pack them into distinctive;
– Guide the design of the agenda and programme’s conditions to stimulate discussions and involvement of all workshops participants;
– Assist in ensuring for beneficiary ownership of the project results, its sustainability, visibility and human rights-based approach.
