Partnership with FIOD
On 16 February 2018, Europol signed a strategic partnership on financial investigations with the Dutch Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD).
Through the partnership, the level of information exchange between the two agencies will be increased:
- Mutual assistance;
- Expertise and knowledge sharing.
Furthermore, joint project groups are to be established in order to specifically address the topics of offshore centres, high-end money laundering, new payment methods, and virtual currencies as well as legal barriers and difficulties.
