In her address, the British High Commissioner congratulated the senior officials for having followed the two-week training course, which according to her, has enabled them to learn more about managing investigations, dealing with witnesses and suspects, and optimising the use of investigative tools, thereby further enhancing their leadership and investigation skills.

Given the status of Mauritius and the United Kingdoms as international financial centres, this type of collaboration is key for effectively fighting international illicit financial flows, she stated.

“The training builds on the existing partnership between the UK and Mauritius. Global trends such as growing inequality, technological developments and new forms of criminal activities have pushed us to redefine our approach to policing and reconsider the need for law enforcement response to adapt its capabilities and efforts,” she said.

The British High Commissioner highlighted that in addition to building an international financial system that supports both countries’ mutual prosperity and stands firm against the challenges of dirty money, corruption, and terrorist finance, the UK partnership with Mauritius is delivering shared ambitions to create a safe, open and fair society.

Ms Pierre reaffirmed UK’s commitment to supporting policing and law enforcement in Mauritius.

The Leadership and Investigation Management Course covered a range of topics, including ethical policing, leadership skills and making strategic decisions using risk assessment and decision-making tools and models.
