US trains prosecutors in Dominican Republic on investigating and prosecuting document fraud

SANTIAGO, Dominican Republic — The Mississippi Attorney General’s Office, in coordination with US Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), conducted a two-day training for Dominican prosecutors, in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The training focused on best practices in the area of prosecuting cases of document fraud.

The INL-sponsored training took place on May 12 and 13, 2015. The first day of training introduced best practices for investigating and prosecuting document fraud offenses, including techniques for gathering and reviewing evidence and how to prepare these cases for trial. The second day focused on how document fraud facilitates other transnational crimes, including human trafficking.

This was the first overseas deployment for the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office under the memorandum of understanding (MOU) arrangement between the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office and INL.

INL has established formal and informal partnerships with over 100 state and local law enforcement, corrections, judicial, prosecutorial, and non-governmental institutions across the United States. INL’s partners bring significant practical experience to bear and are integral to assisting INL in advancing its mission to combat transnational crime.
