Binance Cooperates with Romanian Authorities in Fight against Financial Crimes

Over the past year, the Binance Investigations team has conducted and participated in over 70 cyber and financial crime workshops with law enforcement from various countries, including Argentina, Australia, Bulgaria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

Leaders lead the training program from the Binance Investigations team, consisting of the most experienced ex-law enforcement cryptocurrency investigators from specialized EU and US agencies.

User protection is the number one priority at Binance. We are committed to helping prevent financial crime, to create a safe ecosystem. We aim to join forces with specialized institutions in Romania to prevent cybercrime. We are happy to share our experience with our law enforcement partners and support their efforts to protect Romania’s financial system from criminal activities.

In Romania, the workshop was led by Jarek Jakubcek, Binance’s Head of Law Enforcement Training and Melanie Lefebvre, Senior LE Trainer.

We work closely with law enforcement to identify and track suspicious accounts and fraudulent activity, helping to fight terrorist financing, ransomware, human trafficking, child abuse and financial crime. As more regulators, law enforcement agencies and private sector stakeholders look more closely at crypto; we see increased demand for training to help inform and combat crypto-crime. We have strengthened our team to meet this demand and are conducting more training with regulatory authorities worldwide.

The program included Binance support for investigations, asset recovery and management offices, anti-money laundering policies and a discussion on crime prevention initiatives.

This event contributes to the capacity-building exercise carried out by the Romanian authorities in combating serious crimes and the increased use of cryptocurrencies. The national asset recovery policy promoted by the Ministry of Justice and ANABI highlights the need for a task force approach when dealing with high-value and atypical assets. This is part of our joint EU and international mission to disrupt organized crime structures by targeting high-priority and specific crimes and disrupting their business model.
