The U.S. tax collection agency is this week training Cambodian bank staff as well as anti-corruption officials, police, judges and prosecutors in how to investigate financial activity to detect wrongdoing, officials said Monday. U.S. Embassy spokesman Sean McIntosh said the program, called Intermediate Financial Investigations Training, was being conducted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). “IRS officials are providing a week-long training for officials from private banks, the Anti-Corruption Unit, Ministry of Justice, Cambodian National Police, and the Cambodian Securities and Exchange Commission to work together in detecting and investigating financial crimes,” Mr. McIntosh said in an email.
