3-7 December 2018, Bucharest, Romania: Peer-to-Peer Visit to Romanian Authorities

AIRE Centre (Advice on Individual Rights in Europe) and RAI Secretariat (Regional Anti-corruption Initiative) partnered up to implement a 2-year Regional Project on asset recovery titled “Strengthening the anti-corruption in the Western Balkans through improving asset seizure measures”. The Project is financed supported by Foreign and Commonwealth Office and supported by Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

 

 

The Regional Project is designed on the basis of comprehensive review and analysis of search, seizure and confiscation of illegally obtained assets conducted by AIRE Centre and RAI Secretariat. The review served as a scoping exercise and provided the baseline for development of the Regional Project. The outcomes of the comprehensive review have been endorsed by the key stakeholders from the Region at the Regional Conference on Strengthening Cooperation in the Field of Asset Recovery in Sarajevo, BiH on 28 March 2018.

The first activity within the Regional Project is a Peer-to-Peer Visit planned to take place in Romania from 3rd to 7th December 2018. The purpose of the Peer-to-Peer Visit is to learn first-hand about the best practices and experiences of Romanian Authorities, and to share different perspectives on implementation of asset recovery measures among the participants from the Southeast Europe Region. The Peer-to-Peer Visit will enable participants to gain better understanding of the modalities and mechanisms in the field of asset recovery and increase awareness about available legal and practical solutions, but also identify main challenges. The Visit will be attended by approximately 20 participants, mainly prosecutors and investigators, from the respective countries.
