Course Content (Syllabus)
In this compulsory course of the second semester, the concept of organized crime as a key lever for the development of financial crime is initially examined, the international texts referred to are presented and the substantive provisions on the content of the criminal organization and its relationship with the terrorist organization on the one hand and the gang on the other. The leniency measures adopted specifically to tackle organized crime and put them into practice are also being examined. At the same time, in the light of comparative references in other European legal systems, on the one hand the procedural provisions that were first established for the investigation of organized crime (special investigative acts) and on the other hand the provisions for the trial of crimes committed by criminal organizations are examined, as also the specific aspects of the evidence relating to witness protection and the procedural limits of examination of specific categories of witnesses (trustees, the king's witnesses, informants). The course is interspersed with the presentation of individual cases of organized crime that were dealt in court.
