The Law Enforcement Coordination Group (LECG), which focuses on countering Hizballah’s terrorist and illicit activities, convened at Europol’s headquarters in the Netherlands on December 16-17, for its eighth meeting. Law enforcement, prosecutors, and financial practitioners from the Middle East, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America, participated in this session, alongside specialists from Europol.

The LECG meeting focused on Hizballah’s financial, commercial, and procurement networks and schemes and their linkages to Hizballah’s terrorist activity.  Participants also discussed recent law enforcement actions that governments have taken to disrupt Hizballah’s international operations.

Officials from the U.S. Departments of State, Justice, and the Treasury, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Counterterrorism Center, and Drug Enforcement Administration, also participated in this meeting.  The LECG will convene again in Europe in 2020.
