Money laundering is one of the criminal acts in the marine and fisheries sector (CAMFS) that can harm the national economy, encourage corruption practices, and threaten marine biodiversity. To address this issue, the Directorate General of Surveillance for Marine and Fisheries Resources (Ditjen PSDKP), in collaboration with the Rekam Nusantara Foundation unit Fisheries Resource Center of Indonesia (FRCI), organized a capacity-building event for Civil Servant Investigators in the field of Marine and Fisheries with the theme 'Enforcing Anti-Money Laundering Regime in Criminal Acts in the Marine and Fisheries Sector.'
This event took place at the campus of the Attorney General's Training Institute of the Republic of Indonesia from September 25 to 29, 2023. The training was attended by 25 participants, consisting of the civil servant investigators from the Directorate of Law Enforcement, Ditjen PSDKP, and also the Indonesian Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (INTRAC).
