Professor Scicluna noted that “the agreement signed reflects the determination of the two institutions to continue with their long-standing tradition of mutual assistance through the sharing of personnel, training and technical resources, and allowing them to further this cooperation in preventing counterfeiting, which is highly detrimental to the euro as a tool for making payments.”

The Commissioner of the Malta Police Force, Mr Gafà said that “The Malta Police Force is pleased to seal this agreement which is a recognition that financial crime, including serious and organised financial crime, can be effectively dealt with through a multi-stakeholder approach.”
