Under the patronage of the Head of the Government of the Republic of Tunisia, the national coordination to support the efforts of the State for the recovery of stolen assets placed abroad, chaired by the Ministry of Justice, and in cooperation with UNDP organized an international symposium entitled on Asset Recovery in Tunis on 14-15 December 2012. More than 200 participants attended this event, including senior officials from the government and the justice sector, prominent representatives of civil society as well as regional and international experts. This symposium is part of the Tunisian government’s efforts to develop an open platform allowing the different actors, including the media and civil society to share their efforts and participate in an interactive dialogue on achievements realized, challenges and ways to move forward with regards to asset recovery. It provided participants with an opportunity to discuss Tunisia’s latest efforts in asset recovery, including the procedures put in place by the recently established committee within the Central Bank for this purpose, as well as share comparative experiences and discuss the political, legal, procedural and media-related means that need to be adopted in this field to achieve a successful and inclusive strategy in this regard.
