September 2022 - Information on the ACN Matrix of high-level corruption cases
October 2022 - 12th Meeting of the LEN was held in Istanbul, Türkiye and brought together law enforcement practitioners working on corruption cases from the Eastern European and Central Asian region.
The meeting provided a unique opportunity for law enforcement practitioners to build their capacity and learn about modern investigative and prosecutorial techniques in complex cross-border corruption cases. Law enforcement practitioners discussed challenges in detecting, investigating and prosecuting corruption cases related to Covid-19 or other emergency situations and exchanged best practices on tackling high-level corruption and in confiscating illicit assets and their repatriation through asset recovery initiatives.
The meeting also marked the first time that an informal working group to facilitate cooperation between law enforcement bodies from the European Union (EU) and Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries convened.

About the Law Enforcement Network for Eastern Europe and Central Asia
The LEN meetings gather law enforcement officials involved in the investigation and prosecution of corruption cases – including prosecutors, criminal and financial investigators, detectives, and criminal analysts. The meetings practice interactive networking activities and are confidential in nature. However, when appropriate, some parts of these meetings are open to other relevant participants. The LEN has since held 11 LEN meetings, the first one dating back to 2010. Thanks to the funding of the European Union and the U.S. Department of State, the LEN has been strengthening its efforts to reinforce law enforcement action against high-level corruption. In particular, the ACN is creating a special EaP-EU working group under the LEN, developing cross-country studies on high-level corruption and a matrix of high-level corruption cases.
