On January 20-21, the training for assistant prosecutors on human trafficking and money laundering brought together 56 technical staffs from Vientiane Capital, Bolikhamxay and Vientiane province to prepare their readiness to become assistant prosecutors.
The training was led by experts from the Institute for Legal Support and Technical Assistance (ILSTA), Mr Keith Farquharson and Ms Alina Timus. Theories on human trafficking and money laundering were introduced along with practical group activities based on case studies. Attendees conducted a mock interview with a victim of human trafficking from a simulation scenario. The rest of the training was followed by discussions on information exchange mechanisms, financial investigations and a mock trial video.
The training was conducted in a lively manner, with participants eager to discuss and share knowledge in a Q&A session to assess what they had learned over the past two days. ILSTA wishes all participants good luck and success in their exams to become assistant prosecutors soon.
