DUSHANBE, May 3, 2013, Asia-Plus – Two anti-corruption training courses for representatives of border, customs, and law enforcement agencies completed at the OSCE Border Management Staff College (BMSC) in Dushanbe yesterday.

According to the OSCE Office in Tajikistan, each course lasted one week; the first one started on 22 April.  Forty-five mid-level and senior officers from Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Ukraine attended the training organized in cooperation with the OSCE Transnational   Threats Department.

The courses focused on identifying types of corruption, conducting risk analysis as well as at developing investigative skills.  The participants also worked on designing and implementing anti-corruption strategies and the investigation of cases of organized corruption within the border, customs, and law enforcement agencies.

“The fight against corruption should be a priority task in every society in the world,” said Julia Klaus, Director of the OSCE Border Management Staff College.  “I trust that the best practices and models the participants learned about during this training course will help them in their daily work to combat corruption in their countries.”

Peter Beyer, a former senior detective from the UK’s Scotland Yard, and organized crime adviser at the OSCE Mission to Serbia delivered the course. 

“The interactive nature of the course, group discussions and scenario-based exercises allowed participants to compare approaches to solve the problem and identify good practices from around the world,” he said.
