Liechtenstein and Guatemala host a joint ICC - ICAR workshop on financial investigation

In the context of the ICC Assembly of State Parties held in New York in December, the ICC and ICAR jointly organised a side event on financial investigation in the context of investigations into serious international crimes.

Hosted by the missions of Liechtenstein and Guatemala to the UN, the event brought together policy makers and practitioners to discuss the stumbling blocks to and the potential of tracing and recovering assets stolen in the context of or by perpetrators of serious international crime. Participants agreed that enhancing the Court's capacity in financial investigation would contribute to the Court's mission and mandate.
