Montenegro flagIACA this week delivered a tailor-made training on conflict of interest for officials from the Agency for Prevention of Corruption of Montenegro. The programme was co-organized and hosted by the US Embassy to Montenegro INL (Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs) Criminal Justice Programme of the Department of State.

Participants included mid-level and senior staff from the Montenegrin Agency for Prevention of Corruption working on investigations, asset declaration monitoring, and international cooperation, as well as staff from the INL.

The training took place in Budva, Montenegro, and covered topics including investigative techniques and implementing codes of conduct. Delivered by members of IACA’s visiting faculty and with additional contributions from US Embassy experts, the session also looked at conflict of interest investigations in Montenegro and recent developments in the national courts, as well as other case studies.
