Anti-Money Laundering Prosecutorial Training Held in the United Arab Emirates

December 2011

In cooperation with the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE’s) Ministry of Justice, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) hosted a training on asset forfeiture and anti-money laundering for approximately 20 Emirati prosecutors on October 27 in Dubai. The agenda covered a number of areas, including case selection, prosecuting financial institutions, tracing assets (including by using information technology), asset forfeiture, government and institutional corruption and international mutual legal assistance.  Additionally, select international cases and approaches were examined using a comparative perspective that drew upon the UAE’s existing legal regime for handling such cases. 

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