Fiona Jackson delivers Asset Recovery in Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing workshop in Georgia

At the invitation of the Council of Europe, on 21-22 November Fiona Jackson delivered a two-day workshop in Tbilisi to judges, prosecutors, police officers and financial investigators on criminal confiscation, non-conviction based forfeiture including civil recovery and Unexplained Wealth Orders, restraint and freezing, and maximising success in mutual legal assistance for international asset recovery as part of the CoE’s Partnership for Good Governance: Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in Georgia initiative. 

Fiona and her co-presenter Jean-Michel Verelst (Deputy King’s Prosecutor of Brussels and Director of the Belgian Central Office for Seizure and Confiscation) took delegates through key domestic and international legal frameworks, central concepts of asset recovery, and training exercises to cement understanding of best practice in drafting MLA requests and international restraint/freezing/enforcement to support asset recovery orders.
