Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina - The 4th Meeting of the Thematic Working Group on Exchange of Information regarding Forged and Fake Travel Documents within PCC SEE, organized under the auspices of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Chairmanship in Office, took place on 24 and 25 April 2014 in Sarajevo. Experts with operational experience as well as a background in forensics from the 11 PCC SEE Contracting Parties and Switzerland exchanged specimens and information on new forms, methods and misuse of forged and fake travel documents, as well as national training systems, and identified common challenges in their daily work. They also supported the use of the Border Sentry world-wide web application for management of early warning messages and risk analysis statistics, developed within the Workshop on Regional Risk Analysis under the auspices of the DCAF Border Security Programme, as an alternative to the current e-mail exchange of alerts.
