PCC SEE Secretariat supports the Regional Workshop on Enhancing criminal justice response to address evidential issues for investigating cases of trafficking in persons in the South Eastern Europe

Belgrade, 18-20 October 2022 - The Regional Workshop was organized by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia and the Police Cooperation Convention for Southeast Europe Secretariat (PCC SEE), with funding support from the Federal Ministry of European and International Affairs of Austria.

The Workshop brought together law enforcement experts competent with investigating and prosecuting trafficking in persons (TIP) and organized crime from the 12 PCC SEE Contracting Parties. The Workshop increased the ability of practitioners to engage in effective cross-border cooperation by promoting a common understanding of the forms and manifestations of TIP in the region. Moreover, the participants also learned about the importance of digital evidence in financial investigations that could lead to the ringleaders of a criminal network, as well as evidence that can be obtained from social media networks and private companies.
