CGCC and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Capacity Building Programme Against Terrorism (ICPAT) organized this training seminar on extradition and mutual legal assistance (MLA). Participants in the training workshop included law enforcement officials, prosecutors, and judges from IGAD member states. The meeting was facilitated by CGCC, ICPAT, Amicus Legal Consultants Ltd., the African Centre for the Study and Research on Terrorism, the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate, and the Pan African Lawyers Union, among others. It was part of a series of training workshops designed to raise awareness of the recently adopted IGAD MLA and extradition conventions and to foster the cross-border contacts and technical knowledge of the conventions necessary for their effective use.
