A delegation of two representatives of Senegal’s CENTIF came to Monaco on October 11 and 12 to learn from their counterparts at SICCFIN about techniques to help in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
The officials of the Senegalese Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) were able to discuss a number of issues with specialised SICCFIN agents, including the topics of investigations and international judicial cooperation. Meetings also involved the Directorate of Judicial Services, in particular the Prosecutor General’s Office.
In addition, the visit was aimed at strengthening existing links between the two FIUs. Requests for visits to Monaco from other FIUs testify to the recognition of SICCFIN’s quality of the work carried out by its agents and the Principality’s commitment to the fight against the scourge of money laundering.
Two years ago, SICCFIN received a delegation from the CENTIF of Côte d’Ivoire, and another from Niger’s CENTIF representatives.

On Tuesday, July 18, as part of his travels related to the First World War centenary, Prince Albert II visited Côté 186 in the commune of Cormicy in the French department of Marne. The Sovereign stopped at the observation point of the French frontline on the German border, not far from the famous "Chemin des Dames" where three battles were fought.
This battleground had been visited by his great-great-grandfather Prince Albert I on August 9, 1916, accompanied by his son, Hereditary Prince Louis II, then enlisted in the French Army, a liaison officer of the Fifth Army, who controlled this territory.[caption id="attachment_19485" align="alignnone" width="993"] Photo: G.

In the company of Dominique Decaudin, Mayor of Cormicy, Prince Albert II climbed several hundred meters of elevation to reach this strategic location, where there remains a casemate, in the middle of a forest still scarred by bombings.
On this occasion the prince unveiled a pupitre, a commemorative stand, which was dedicated on the initiative of the Association "Cormicy ma ville, son histoire" (My city, its history).[caption id="attachment_19483" align="alignnone" width="993"] Photo: G.
