The Counter-Terrorism Financing Investigation Course (Basic) was successfully organised from 23 to 25 April 2019 at Malaysia Correctional Academy, Langkawi, Kedah. This workshop was attended by 30 officers from various agencies.
The speakers who led this workshop were SEARCCT’s local trainers from relevant agencies, 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 three (3) days, participants were exposed to the alarming threat of Daesh through the statistics of terrorist suspects in Malaysia while understanding the various legal tools in Malaysia that are 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 terrorism financing case studies in Malaysia and abroad.
