ROLACC Geneva trains Senegalese judges and international civil servants (UN) in anti-corruption.

A delegation composed of judges from the Republic of Senegal and international civil servant (UN) was able to benefit from the technical and practical lessons of the ROLACC Geneva Center during a new anti-corruption training session. From the 1st to the 4th of October 2018, ROLACC experts provided 21 hours of intensive training over 7 modules to the delegation, as part of an official partnership with the Senegalese Ministry of Justice. The selection of participants was based on their service record, as requested by President Ali Bin Fetais Al-Marri, Attorney General of the State of Qatar and United Nations Special Advocate against Corruption.

Based on the observation that the fight against corruption requires a perfect knowledge of the national and international regulations in force, but also of technical and pratical skills, the following program was conducted: corporate finance and corruption, non-verbal communication (synergology) applied to interrogation, national cooperation and product tracing, international judicial cooperation, the role of financial intelligence units, corruption and financial markets, recovery of ill-gotten assets. The transversal approach combining law, economics and finance has been favoured by the center’s experts.

Beyond the purely technical aspects, this training was also a time for thinking and sharing experiences that will probably lead to new ambitious projects.
