For several years, the European Union Border Assistance Mission to Rafah (EUBAM Rafah) has directed its activities towards building the capacities of the different agencies in the field of border control and the strengthening of external borders. In that context, the Mission concluded a 3-day-training on Joint Investigation Teams (JIT) for border-related criminality at GABC Training Center in Jericho between the 24th and 26th of June.
Five experienced prosecutors and twelve of the most skilled investigators from PA border agencies attended the training and learnt about this investigative tool. All participants worked jointly on hypothetical scenarios developed specifically to support the different lessons. The training was delivered by two international experts; Mr Ola Laurell – former Chief Prosecutor in Sweden and former representative of its country at EUROJUST and Mrs Petra Sesek from the JITs Network Secretariat in The Haque, Netherland.
