The activity will focus on sharing knowledge on money laundering typologies and demonstrating good national practices of the integration of financial investigations into various kind of serious crime – investigation – cases. A separate module will concentrate on the added value of cross-border cooperation instruments (Europol, CARIN, AMON and similar) and emphasis will be put on how to investigate money laundering without the investigation or detection of the predicate offense (the Dutch method).

Topics will encompass the offshore challenge, cash collection networks, trade-based money laundering practices, money laundering techniques via virtual currencies or underground banking as well. Additionally through several examples it will be demonstrated how financial investigative approach contributes to serious crime investigations at operative level. The importance of suppressing crime enablers and the viable use of EU cooperation tools (e.g. Europol) will be also debated during the course.

The freedom of speech and the freedom of media are fundamental pillars of functioning democratic societies. Investigative journalists that uncover the illegal practices of corrupt powerful actors corrupt politicians, leaders of crime groups make an important service to the society. Due to the sensitivity and nature of their work media workers may be the target of threats or assaults by political/religious extremists, criminals, corrupt businessman or officials or mentally disordered lone actors.

Intimidation may take various formats such as physical assaults, damages to property, verbal threats, social media threats, frightening messages but experience shows that in extreme and serious cases related to organised crime it can lead to murder. Assaults may target individuals or a group of people / institutions such as a newspaper or TV channel.

Police must protect journalists from assaults and investigate violence and threats against them. Effective risk assessment, intelligence collection and analysis are essential factors in order to differentiate petty bullying from serious life threatening intimidations and enable police to adjust its measures.

This webinar will discuss how law enforcement can act against the intimidation of journalists and provide adequate protection to them concerning the threats and attacks they receive regarding their work. The contributing experts from Italy and Portugal will describe their police practice regarding the analysis of threats and the protection measures applied in practice through recent examples.

The ultimate goal of most criminals committing serious crimes is financial gain. Offshore tax havens unfortunately provide a comfortable solution for criminals to hide their illegal revenues. Criminals often invest their earnings into real estates by the use of their offshore based structures (shell companies, trusts, limited liability companies) at a later stage of money laundering. Great part of these real estates are purchased in the homeland of the criminal groups. This is quite logical, as criminals know the real estate situation in their own country the best, they wish to benefit personally from these investments and want the assets to remain in hand.

The Dutch Tax and Customs authority launched a project to map and analyse offshore investments in the Netherlands in order to identify investments of organised crime groups. The project proactively searched for potential criminal assets by assessing top investments with offshore background. This initiative had been concluded and the key players behind the project implementation from the Dutch Anti-Money Laundering Centre will share their experience during this webinar. The contributing colleagues will describe the approach and logic of the project, the analysis steps they followed, the beneficial profiling techniques and tools. Moreover they will share their first-hand experience on how such a project could work, what sort of officers you need for such an initiative, which databases you could use, how the project could be further developed, what is possible and what are the limitations of such an enterprise.

Law enforcement often limits its activity to reactive money-laundering investigations when at least the suspicion of predicate offence/money laundering activity is established. This project is an example of a proactive approach how state authorities (police, customs, tax…) should look for indicators of criminal infiltration into the legal economy.

CEPOL recently published the European Union Strategic Training needs Assessment (EU-STNA) that defines strategic level training priorities for law enforcement officials across Europe, for the current EMPACT cycle 2022-2025. The EU-STNA 2022-2025 process has revealed eight core capability gaps constituting the main areas in which law enforcement officials need to be trained.

Furthermore, it has identified 230 training needs, prioritised by Member States clustered in 17 thematic areas as well as 9 other specific training needs included under a separate category. It has to be noted that the core capability gaps are relevant for all thematic areas of training. In addition, for the first time Member States indicated that at present 110 368 law enforcement officials across the EU would need EU-level training in the areas presented in this report.

The webinar will present the outcomes of the EU-STNA and the way of its implementation by external stakeholders of CEPOL.
