Money Laundering Workshop - Dominican Republic
In May 2017, the program hosted a two-day training program for judges, prosecutors, and other relevant agencies on how to improve money laundering and corruption investigations, as well as prosecution of such cases. The workshop aimed to provide an overview of the legal framework and the procedural mechanisms of gathering evidence and processing these crimes successfully. The faculty team focused on strategies for collecting acceptable evidence in fraudulent schemes, as well as on procedures for locating illegally obtained assets and making them available to the competent authorities in order to proceed with their forfeiture. Course materials included U.S., DR, and other federal laws and procedures, hypothetical cases, and legal frameworks, including asset and money laundering.
