The European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission (EUPOL COPPS) advisers held a one-day training session for 80 Palestinian lawyers on 26 December 2019 to raise awareness about money laundering.
The workshop, held in the West Bank city of Hebron in cooperation with the Palestinian Bar Association, is part of EUPOL COPPS support for enhancing the capabilities of Palestinian lawyers in specialised topics within the area of criminal justice.
Mission advisers provided the attendees with the legal and operational know-how for identifying and understanding money laundering and its severe impact on society.
More than half of the attendees of the training were female lawyers.
EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
