The five-day programme included sessions on conflict of interest investigations, anti-money-laundering, asset recovery, investigation of corruption cases, and extradition and mutual legal assistance. These lectures were delivered by IACA’s in-house experts as well as visiting lecturers. Participants also visited the Austrian Court of Audit and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) as part of the training programme.
