Tajiks attend terror financing workshop


DUSHANBE -- The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Thursday (September 21) in Dushanbe concluded a three-day-long course on fighting money laundering and terror financing, the OSCE said in a statement.

Thirty-five Tajiks employed in government and the private sector, including the National Bank of Tajikistan, attended the workshop, which the OSCE and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) organised. The training was meant to build the Tajiks' capacity to fight those crimes.

The challenge is growing because terrorist groups are using "sophisticated techniques" to conceal their money laundering, warned OSCE Dushanbe Programme Office Head Tuula Yrjölä.
