MPRJ promotes training to combat money laundering with cryptocurrencies

A new public capacity building will bring the fight against money laundering with cryptocurrencies to the attention of agents. It is worth remembering that not only members of the Public Prosecution Service receive training in this sector, but the entire Brazilian criminal investigation department.

The new training is being promoted by the Commission to Combat Corruption (CEC) of the National Council of the Public Ministry (CNMP) and the Roberto Bernardes Barroso Education Institute (IERBB) of the Public Ministry of the State of Rio de Janeiro (MP/RJ ).

It is worth remembering that recently the National Council of the MP announced that it is studying a blockchain solution to conserve water, showing that the basic technology of cryptocurrencies is also known to the body.

Brazil is experiencing a moment of major repercussions in the cryptocurrency market after several cases of financial fraud came to light. Some of the most famous took place in 2021, with the fall of the “Bitcoin King” (Operation Daemon) and “Bitcoin Pharaoh” (Operation Kryptos), when the PF arrested the leaders of various schemes.

In this way, the cryptocurrency sector came in the crosshairs of the Brazilian authorities, who accelerated a bill to regulate the sector. In addition, the police forces began training on the subject, be it identifying scams in the industry as well as the ensuing investigation and asset tracking.

And on May 23, prosecutors from all over Brazil will be able to participate in a virtual training on the subject, which will be presented by the Microsoft Teams platform.

Francisco Cardoso, the MP/RJ’s course coordinator and prosecutor, said the aim is to improve the investigation of members of money laundering crimes.

What we found is that colleagues usually have the technical and procedural knowledge related to the investigation, but still have limited knowledge about the performance of the key mandatory topics and the markets involved in money laundering operations. In that sense, it is our intention to place colleagues from the House of Representatives and the judiciary next to representatives of these markets and thus to give the colleague a full understanding of how these mechanisms work.

And one of the topics covered on the first date of the event is about money laundering with cryptocurrencies, an industry increasingly associated with the country’s crime-fighting.

Money laundering with new financial technologies and works of art is also being studied

Module 1 of the training will engage students in learning not only about cryptocurrencies, but also real estate, games, casinos, betting, as well as money laundering related to drug trafficking and militias.

For the second semester, module will discuss 2 ways to fight money laundering with works of art, legal, advisory and advisory services, jewelery and precious metals, in addition to new financial technologies.

It is worth remembering that this training is only available to members of the Public Prosecution Service in Brazil.
