Disrupting criminal trafficking and smuggling networks through increased anti-money laundering and financial investigation capacity in the Greater Horn of Africa

This action is a regional intervention covering ten countries in the Greater Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Yemen). In order to ensure even greater coordination and cooperation at the regional level, other members of the “Eastern and Southern Africa Anti-Money Laundering Group” (ESAAMLG) may also benefit from some of the activities implemented by this action on an ad hoc basis as “observers”.

Main objectives

The aim of the project is to disrupt cross-border criminal organisations profiting from irregular migration, human trafficking and other types of organised crime by focusing on their financial resources.

The specific objective is to better equip relevant country agencies to disrupt the traffickers and smugglers of human beings operating in the Greater Horn of Africa through efficient use of financial investigations and anti-money laundering approaches, including on tracing and seizing assets and criminal proceeds, as well as on crime investigation and prosecution.
