April 25, 2011 - PRLog -- MIAMI – While social and political upheaval has radically altered the face of the Middle East-North African region, the ousting of politically exposed persons has led the citizens of those nations to ask one question: Where is the money? IAAR will attempt to answer that question on Monday, May 4 at 12 PM EST when it presents the Web Seminar Tracing and Recovering the Stolen National Treasures Taken by Deposed Despots and Dictators in the Middle East and North Africa on May 4 at 12 PM EST, featuring international financial investigator and expert attorney Kenneth Barden, CSAR.

Mr. Barden, a renowned figure in the realm of asset recovery who has been quoted in recent weeks by the New York Times, National Public Radio and the BBC, will explore the unmasking of the deep corruption that the deposed dictators and their close associates practice over long decades in power. In some cases it has been estimated that the dictators stole $40 billion or more from their impoverished subjects. To recover that money, asset recovery professionals must understand the unique tools and weapons that they must use to meet the asset recovery challenge effectively. There are tools and weapons offered by the countries that follow the common law, the civil law and, in predominantly Muslim countries, Sharia law. Whether it is a private sector team of asset recovery professionals or a public sector team which may be cooperating with their private sector counterparts, it is important that both know what they must do to vindicate the rights of the ravished treasuries of the affected countries.

Kenneth Barden, CSAR: International Investigator Extraordinaire

As a financial investigator, attorney and expert consultant, Mr. Barden has pursued the assets of corrupt regimes and criminal empires for more than 30 years. In November 2010, Mr. Barden was part of the inaugural class of Certified Specialists in Asset Recovery (CSAR), joining dozens of other asset recovery professionals from the legal, law enforcement, accounting and analysis fields who demonstrated proficiency in the neglected art of asset recovery.

The CSAR credential was pioneered and created by IAAR adhering to psychometric principles. It is the first and only legally defensible, unitary examination verifying the skills needed to win the endgame of financial crime: asset recovery.

Cross-Border Asset Tracing and Recovery Conference

The Web Seminar will serve as a preview for a panel of the same name at IAAR's 2011 Cross-Border Asset Tracing and Recovery Conference, to be held June 12-14 at the Waldorf Hilton in London. Mr. Barden will participate on the live panel, scheduled for June 14, along with Kevin Roberts, a London-based expert forensic accountant and partner at international investigative law firm Morrison Foerster. The panel will be moderated by IAAR editor David Quinones.
