Fight against the corruption
The Law on organization and competence of state authorities in suppression of organized crime, terrorism and corruption introduce new tools for the fight against corruption and economic crime, primarily in the form of specialization of competent state bodies, and then the introduction of the most modern ways of working, such as multi-departmental task forces, liaison officers in competent state bodies and financial forensics in public prosecutor’s offices. 

Pursuant to this law, on March 1, 2018, special departments for suppression of corruption in the police, public prosecutor’s offices and courts were established. These departments were established in four higher public prosecutor’s offices in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš and Kraljevo, with jurisdiction over the criminal prosecution of corruption, economic crime and money laundering in the territory of their appellate area, thus enabling the concentration of specialized knowledge and the efficiency of criminal prosecution.

During these seminars, participants from the public prosecutor’s offices, among other things, had the opportunity to practice a new work methodology – monitoring cash flows, integrated management of financial and criminal investigations and inter-agency cooperation – task force work on specific case studies.
