EU-ACT Georgia has delivered another face-to-face training in Tbilisi, Georgia. The training was organised at the Office of Prosecutor’s General on 15-18 March with 10 prosecutors representing different regions of Georgia.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions in Georgia, training was postponed for several times in the previous year.
The training curriculum on drug-related crimes and drug trafficking was jointly delivered by Georgian trainers at Prosecutor’s Office and non-key expert Ignacio De Lucas remotely from Spain. The training programme was developed by the Spanish expert and involved several intense development stages such as need assessment of the Prosecutor’s Office General, training of trainers, selections of the final trainers and implementation of the pilot training programme in 2018-2019. The programme covers topics as the objective of drug-related crime, undercover agents, punishable and non-punishable acts, international judicial cooperation, transnational organised crime, ECHR case law related to drug trafficking cases etc.
On the final day of the event, EU-ACT Regional Coordinator handed over the certificates to the participants. Before the closure of the EU-ACT project in Georgia, similar training will be delivered in April 2021.
