Success Stories

Rodolphe AZO, Investigating Judge of the First Cabinet of the Cotonou Trial Court in Benin, Member of the Investigation Commission of the Court for the Repression of Economic Offences and Terrorism (CRIET)

“I attended UNODC training courses held in Benin on mutual legal assistance, judicial cooperation and international rogatory commissions. These trainings significantly increased my capacity and knowledge of prosecution of economic and financial crimes. These trainings enabled me to become more familiar with the tools of judicial cooperation. I was thus able to better handle rogatory commissions for extradition requests, particularly from Burkina Faso, China and Lebanon. These trainings have increased my understanding of the facts of the procedures that are assigned to me and thus enabled me to undertake the most appropriate and informed actions for investigation. The procedures are thus approached with greater precision and assurance.”
