National PCC SEE Awareness Raising Workshop in the Republic of Albania

Tirana, Albania - With the financial support of the IPA2017 project »Countering Serious Crime in the Western Balkans«, the PCC SEE Secretariat organised a one-day national PCC SEE Awareness Raising Workshop for Albanian police and prosecution authorities. The workshop aimed to refresh and upgrade the knowledge about the PCC SEE and its provisions, demonstrate first-hand experience in its practical applicability, as well as introduce the PCC SEE to those that are less familiarised with its content. Focus was given especially to the deployment of criminal investigators pursuant to Article 26 PCC SEE and the offer of the PCC SEE Secretariat to financially and logistically support such deployments among the Contracting Parties for the purpose of supporting each other in various phases of investigations.  In this regard, the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Serbia provided experienced police officials to support the workshop by presenting a cooperation model based on the PCC SEE established between Austria and Serbia.
