Combating Financial Crime

May 8, 2024, 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m


With the continuation of this specialist conference in 2023, everyone involved wants to contribute to supporting the cooperation and training of public prosecutors, police, customs, financial and other administrative authorities.
Financial investigations by law enforcement authorities are of considerable importance for the detection, allocation, asset protection and confiscation of criminally obtained assets and for the fight against money laundering, terrorist financing and the investigation of other crimes including undeclared work. This also includes determining the circumstances that can serve as the basis for the statutory compensation for victims or compensation for damage.
In addition, procedural-independent financial investigations serve to investigate suspicious circumstances that arise, for example, from financial transactions or conspicuous financial behavior without a criminal offense being clearly attributable to them.

Follow the money
To effectively combating financial crime, for example the German Federal Ministry of Finance BMF bundle the most important competencies under the umbrella of a new authority: the “Federal Higher Authority to Combat Financial Crime” (BBF) from the three pillars of the new Federal Financial Crime Office BFKA, Financial Intelligence Unit FIU (which was located in the BKA until 2017) and the new one Central Office for Money Laundering Supervision. On October 11, 2023, the German Federal Cabinet approved the draft law to improve the fight against financial crime, or Financial Crime Combating Act (FKBG). The FKBG reorganizes the fight against financial crime, especially money laundering, in Germany. The FKBG represents an essential part of the current reform package to realign the fight against financial crime.

German Federal Minister of the Interior and Homeland Nancy Faeser and the President of the BKA Holger Münch emphasized at the BKA autumn conference in 2022 that the BKA and the Federal Police will therefore consistently further expand their financial investigation capabilities and promote the cooperation of all authorities. In addition, cooperation with the financial world must be further expanded.
