Suriname: Training to Counter Money Laundering

From July 11 to 19, 2016, NCSC hosted an anti-money laundering workshop in Paramaribo for members of the Public Prosecutions Department and Police Department. The program was designed to provide participants with the skills necessary to identify and prosecute money laundering activities. Topics included methods of identifying money laundering techniques, mounting successful prosecutions, and seizure of illicit funds.

The workshop was presented by two experts from the Netherlands, Mr. Diego Crijns (Police Department), and Ms. Anita van dis-Setz (Public Prosecution Service), both of whom have experience fighting money laundering in the Netherlands and internationally. The workshop was attended by the Prosecutor General, Mr. Roy Baidjnath Panday, who expressed his commitment to the training, and emphasized the need for additional training in the future.

The workshop was hosted as part of NCSC’s ongoing work under the Justice Sector Assistance to the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative Program (CBSI), funded by the Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). For more information, please visit:
