The U.S. Embassy supports improving the capacity of Georgian prosecutors and law enforcement as they bring those who commit financial crimes to justice. Last week staff from the Embassy’s office of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs and the U.S. Department of Justice accompanied Georgian prosecutors and law enforcement officers to a Financial Investigation Techniques course at the Central and Eastern  European Law Initiative (CEELI) Institute in Prague. The Georgian participants further developed their skills to investigate financial crimes, including money laundering. The program was made possible with funding from the CEELI institute and support from the Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
