Training Seminar on Effective Prosecution of Corruption


Training Seminar on Effective Prosecution of Corruption

11 February 2003 to 13 February 2003

Prosecution of corruption is a particularly difficult endeavor and success in this field is still too rare. The detection rate is often low due to the lack of verifiable information. Particular difficulties arise when an investigation involves prominent politicians and wealthy businessmen, or when dealing with international bribery cases that require the assistance from foreign jurisdictions in order to collect evidence. Shortcomings that are at the root of these problems can be found at legislative level. In addition, many law enforcement agencies are technically not apt to successfully deal with complex crimes such as corruption.
