GIZ, partners train journalists on Illicit Financial Flows -

As part of efforts to stop the menace of Illicit Financial Flows in Africa and particularly Ghana, a capacity building workshop has been organised for 12 selected journalists across the country.


Some of the topics treated included investigative reporting on IFFs, Ghana IFFs institutional mapping, computer-assisted reporting, digital security, Right to Information (RTI), media ethics and many others.

The training workshop was to better prepare journalists to develop interest and be equipped with the knowledge on IFFs reporting both local and international.

Ghana in particular loses $340 million annually to Illicit Financial Flows every year.

Workshop facilitators, an economic and IFFs consultant, Bishop Akolgo and renowned international journalist, Patrick Batarilo were unanimous in their call on journalists to play key roles in nibbing IFFs in the bud.

They also charged journalists to do their work in IFFs without fear or favour to fulfill their mandates as Fourth Estate of the Realm.

At the end of the five-day intensive workshop, the 12 journalists were resolved to expose those involved in Illicit Financial Flows in Ghana and abroad.
