Counter-Terrorism Financial Investigation Course (Basic)
2 – 4 September 2020
Promenade Hotel, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The Counter-Terrorism Financing Investigation Course (Basic) was organised from 2 to 4 September 2020 at the Promenade Hotel, Kota Kinabalu Sabah. This was the first of many series of Counter-Terrorism Financial Investigation Course (Basic) in Sabah. The attendees were officers of grades 41 and 44 from various agencies.

The speakers who led this workshop were SEARCCT’s local trainers, namely the Royal Malaysia Police, Attorney General’s Chambers and Bank Negara Malaysia. These trainers were initially trained by Australia during SEARCCT’s Financial Investigation Workshop in March 2017.

Over the course of 3 days, participants were exposed to the alarming threat of Daesh based on the statistics of terrorist suspects in Malaysia while understanding the various legal mechanisms put in place. They were then made aware of the differences between money laundering and terrorism financing, along with the various terrorism financing typologies that were discussed through several case studies in Malaysia and abroad.
