This training, the first of its kind to be held in the GCC, also included a presentation by Mr. Mohammed Sharbel, the Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Officer at the UNODC, who explained the model timeline for the reviews and reviewed the articles of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
On the second and final day, Judge Mohammed al-Askari, an expert on asset recovery, gave a presentation on the practical difficulties encountered when recovering stolen or laundered funds. Mr. Sharbel then completed the training course by focusing on the provisions of the Convention against Corruption concerning the recovery of funds.
