ILEA taught a course on financial investigations in corruption cases

This afternoon, a one-week course on Financial Investigations for Public Corruption Cases was taught at our facility by instructors from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The training was given to 30 law enforcement officials from Bolivia, Colombia, Panama, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay, and El Salvador and focused on the use of financial investigation techniques to prosecute and resolve fraud and public corruption crimes, through methods of money tracing, asset identification and forfeiture, and calculating the amount of illegal income.

The IRS instructors thanked ILEA San Salvador for the opportunity to deliver this course and acknowledged the enormous work the institution has done in the field of security, to provide law enforcement officials with tools that enable them to effectively combat transnational crime.
