This call for applications is open for persons with citizenship of the Republic of Serbia.
The Republic of Serbia adopted a Law on “Organization and Jurisdiction of State Authorities in Suppressing Organized Crime, Terrorism and Corruption” on 28 November 2016 and its implementation started on 1 March 2018. The Law established specialized departments of Higher Prosecution Offices and Higher Courts in Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad and Kraljevo, which have exclusive jurisdiction over, inter alia, corruption-related investigations and prosecutions. When it comes to the Ministry of Interior (MoI), as the Law foresees, the competent organ to conduct criminal investigations upon the order of the Specialized Department Prosecutor will be the Anti-Corruption Department established on 1 March 2018 within the Criminal Investigations Directorate.
The main objective of the OSCE’s project on “Enhancing capacities of Serbian police to fight corruption – Phase II” is to focus on new Anti-Corruption Department within the MoI and its 8 newly established anti-corruption field sections in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Nis, Kraljevo, Subotica, Uzice, Zajecar and Jagodina, in addition to one co-ordination section located in Belgrade (approximately 90 police officers).
In order to prepare these sections to become operational, the project already trained approximately 100 police officers through the four-week basic specialised training courses on corruption that were held from September 2017 till March 2018 in Sremska Kamenica (five groups in total).
Furthermore, the Project envisaged that the basic specialised courses will be followed by advanced two-day training courses on different topics such as: Open source databases; Bank documentation; Special evidentiary measures; Proving criminal offenses; Misuse of EU fraud and Public procurement fraud. Since the total number of participants is 80, they are all divided in four groups, so each topic will be presented four times ones per each group.
Workshops on Open source databases and Bank documentation have been completed, and will be followed by the next topic – Special Evidentiary Measures.
Four workshops on Special Evidentiary Measures are foreseen to be held as following:
