Participants included prosecutors from the Federal Ministry of Justice and the Regional Bureaux of Justice; officials from the Federal Police Commission; various court officials; legal advisers at the Ethiopian Financial Intelligence Center, Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, and the Central Bank; and staff of the Ethiopian Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.
