A conference to discuss protection of euro notes from forgery, attended by hundreds of police and currency experts from 22 countries, started in Bratislava on October 18. This is the 9th annual EURO South-East conference organised by the Bavarian Office for Criminal Investigation, the SITA newswire reported.

Judicial bodies together with police and banking sector representatives from 22 European countries are participating in the conference along with representatives from Europol, Eurojust, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the Bavarian Ministry of Interior and the European Central Bank.

The goal of the conference is to intensify police cooperation and international coordination to protect the euro from forgery, one of priorities of the European Commission. The high mobility of criminal groups led the Office of the Bavarian State Criminal Police to organise the first EURO South-East conference in 2003 to fight euro forgery.

During the 2011 event, pragmatic strategies for fighting this form of crime will be adopted, according to Slovak Police spokeswoman Denisa Baloghová.
