UNODC Promotes Good Practices for the Prosecution and Adjudication of Terrorism Offenses in Central Asia

Prosecution authorities and judiciaries of Central Asian countries are faced with a number of foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs) who have travelled from the region to Syria and Iraq and have returned or may seek to return home. This phenomenon raises unique challenges in terms of developing an effective, appropriate and coordinated prosecutorial and judicial response. Good practices in such and other terrorism related cases, were the focus of a regional workshop held in Tashkent from 20-22 November 2018.

The event was organized by the General Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) as part of the UNODC Program for Central Asia and the regional project “Support to Regional Approaches on Prosecution, Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Returnees” funded by the Governments of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Kingdom of Sweden
