Belgian accountants to get police training

Accountants need to help catch fraudsters

Federal police in Brussels are looking to provide 43 accountants and
financial experts with police training so that they can be deployed in the fight
against financial crime,
according
to reports.

Accountants selected will undertake a 15-month training programme, after
which they will be assigned to the various branches of the federal police.

‘We assume these people can gain better insight in to the VAT carrousel,
catch on more quickly to how embezzlers work and analyse accounts better than
ordinary detectives. In this way they can provide a great deal of help to other
investigators who have more police experience, but less financial background,’
sad Eddy Dhont, management coordinator at the federal police.
