AKIPRESS.COM - A four-day training course on disrupting the financing of terrorist networks was held in Dushanbe by the OSCE Programme Office in co-operation with UN Office on Drugs and Crime’s Regional Office for Central Asia and the OSCE Secretariat’s Transnational Threats Department/Action against Terrorism Unit.
Seventeen Tajik experts and practitioners from the General Prosecutor’s Office, the Financial Monitoring Department of the National Bank of Tajikistan, the Ministry of the Interior, and the State Committee for National Security of the Republic of Tajikistan attended the seminar.
