Bahraini Prosecutors Trained on Anti-Money Laundering Cases

December 2011

In cooperation with the Bahraini Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Bahraini Judicial and Legal Studies Institute, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI)hosted a training on asset forfeiture and anti-money laundering for approximately 20 Bahraini prosecutors from October 23-24 in Manama. The agenda covered a number of areas, including case selection, prosecuting financial institutions, tracing assets (including by using information technology), assetforfeiture, government and institutional corruption and international mutuallegal assistance. Additionally, select international cases and approaches were examined using a comparative perspective that drew upon Bahrain’s existing legal regime for handling such cases.

ABA ROLI’s work to build the practical and professional skills of Bahrainijudges, lawyers and prosecutors is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Middle East Partnership Initiative.
