CBI to train officers on ways to bring back blackmoney

The CBI will begin tomorrow its first training exercise for its investigators on ways to recover of blackmoney stashed abroad as part of Interpol's Global Programme on anti-corruption and asset recovery for prosecutors.

"The purpose of this Global Programme is to enhance the knowledge and skills of investigators and prosecutors in tracking assets of mass corruption, and making effective use of legal assistance in international and trans-border investigations," CBI spokesperson said here.

The six-day training, which will be inaugurated by Minister of State for Personnel V Narayanasamy here on Monday, would be the first such international training exercise for police officers, investigators and prosecutors of Interpol member countries.

The CBI will host 30 police officers from Australia, Afghanistan, China, Hongkong, Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Fiji, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore and the Phillipines for the training programme.

The agenda of the exercise will include talk by senior officers of the Interpol & the CBI.
"Representatives of the UNODC, senior Officers of the Enforcement Directorate, experts from the American Bar Association, chartered accountants and cyber forensic experts will also share their experience and expertise with the participants," the official said.

The CBI itself is investigating a number of corruption cases including 2G spectrum allocation case, CWG case and Bofors case, in which proceeds have allegedly been taken to tax havens and the agency is trying to decipher the money trail.
