U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Mexico City and the Department of Justice’s Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development Assistance and Training (DOJ-OPDAT) hosted the first in a series of four money laundering and asset forfeiture courses Feb. 13-15 in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

The three-day course featured instructors from HSI, DOJ and the Government of Mexico (GOM) providing instruction to more than 50 GOM employees including representatives from the Office of the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Mexico, Federal Police, Financial Investigations Unit and multiple additional agencies. These agencies are actively participating in money laundering and asset forfeiture investigations in conjunction with the HSI Mexico City International Financial Crimes and Asset Recovery Team (IFCART). The four series course is designed to begin with basic money laundering and asset forfeiture and progress into increasingly complex investigative techniques and methods with each subsequent course.
