Tunisia: Intensive Financial Investigative Training Cycle

Between January and March 2019, NCSC held a series of training sessions for judges and police investigators on advanced financial investigative techniques. The trainings were designed to enhance understanding of the logic that underpins financial transactions and business behavior, and how certain behaviors may be indicators of fraudulent activity. Nineteen judges and police investigators attended training over two weeks.

Participants were enthusiastic about the outcomes of the trainings. One investigative judge shared how the training had entirely changed his interrogation method, thanks to techniques he learned regarding mapping and analyzing financial flows. One police captain who attended the training said by increasing his understanding of the main processes and risk areas of a business, he was able to limit his reliance on external audit and investigation services. 

The Increasing Accountability in Tunisia Program is implemented by NCSC and funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI).
