Libyan law enforcement trains in open-source intelligence skills
August 28, 2023
A five-day training course supported by EUBAM Libya took place on Open Source and Social Media Intelligence (OSINT) from 20 – 24 August 2023.
It brought together 13 representatives of Libyan Law Enforcement Agencies in Tunis. The training aimed at enhancing law enforcement agencies’ capacities to effectively collect information available over open source platforms.
Vincenzo Giancarlo Cardinale, Senior Advisor and Project Manager of EUBAM Libya, underlined the role of the Mission in supporting Libyan law enforcement agencies to respond to new challenges.
He added: ‘This training in Open Source and Social Media Intelligence has been useful in strengthening the specialised capacities of Libyan law enforcement agencies to better detect terrorist threats and criminal offences such as migrant smuggling and trafficking of human beings, which are increasingly finding their way online, and assist in identifying those involved in committing them.’
