Money laundering, parallel financial investigation, cryptocurrency and cybercrime and the means of obtaining evidence were some of the topics covered in this training seminar for Angolan magistrates, which took place in a hybrid format.
The PGR, in a statement sent to Lusa, mentions that the training took place between the 28th and 30th of August, in Luanda, and brought together 83 participants in the meeting room of the PGR headquarters building, within the scope of cooperation with DTNA.
According to the note, the investigation of tax crimes in cases of corruption was one of the thematic panels of this training seminar.
In relation to cryptocurrency versus cybercrime and the means of obtaining evidence, they addressed concepts about cryptographic characteristics, mining as proof of work, custody and non-custodial portfolios and financial flow tracking.
“In relation to cryptocurrency, as it is a new reality in the Angolan legal system and despite its lack of clarity, the crime can be substantiated based on the laws on financial crimes or the rules dictated by the National Bank of Angola”, refers in the document.
