FBI Workshop for Economic Crimes and Terrorist Financing


The United States Embassy is pleased to announce its FBI Legal Attaché Office hosted a workshop for Algerian investigators of economic crimes and terrorist financing, from June 15-19 in Algiers.

This workshop sponsored by the FBI, brought together investigators from the Gendarmerie, DGSN, Customs and Algerian agencies such as Cellule de Traitement du Renseignement Financier (CTRF), as well as public and private banks.  The goal of the training was to assist Algerian investigators in the fight against money laundering and counterterrorism in Algeria.

The training focused largely on cash based investigations such as bulk cash smuggling, kidnapping for ransom, and other funding mechanisms for terrorist financing.

This workshop highlighted the continued cooperation between the U.S. and Algeria to combat crime and terrorism.
