UNODC through its Global Programme against Money Laundering, Proceeds of Crime and the Financing of Terrorism (GPML) has delivered pocket guides on Prevention, Detection and Investigation of Cash Couriers and Anonymous Payments Across Borders to Vietnamese Customs on 23 October 2015.  The pocket guide was drafted by GPML experts based on the current situation in Vietnam and includes relevant specialized techniques for detecting and investigating the cross border movement of bulk cash and bearer negotiable instruments.  An initial batch of 1,000 pocket guides were handed over following a lengthy period of review and translation.  It is envisaged that more pocket guides will be produced and delivered next year subject to the success of this initial phase.  The pocket guide will enhance the capacity of Vietnamese Customs Officers to detect cash smuggling and to seize and confiscate the proceeds of crime.
