INTERPOL: “INTERPOL training in Indonesia supports police in investigating migrant smuggling”

August 15, 2014

INTERPOL on August 13, 2014 released the following:

“SEMARANG, Indonesia – The first training session of the INTERPOL Capacity Building Programme on Enhancing Migrant Smuggling Investigation in Southeast Asia is being held in Indonesia in cooperation with the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC).

The two-week course (11-22 August) brings together 22 law enforcement officials from anti-human trafficking units, cybercrime units, INTERPOL National Central Bureaus (NCBs) and national judicial authorities from eight countries: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

The course is part of a two-year training programme, supported by funding from the Government of Canada, which aims to build the investigative capacity of law enforcement officers in Southeast Asia to prevent human trafficking and migrant smuggling, and enhance regional cooperation with a view to creating a sustainable network in the region for the sharing of knowledge and expertise.

Attending the opening ceremony were Police Commissioner General Suhardi Alius, Chief of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Indonesia National Police; Dale Sheehan, INTERPOL’s Director of Capacity Building and Training; Police Brigadier General Soepartiwi, Executive Director of the JCLEC; and Detective Superintendent Brian Thomson, Executive Director of Programs with the JCLEC.

Brigadier General Soepartiwi underlined the important role of INTERPOL in the fight against transnational crime in Southeast Asia, and applauded the Canadian Government and INTERPOL for their support in implementing the capacity building programme in the region.

Commending the JCLEC on its 10th anniversary, Mr Sheehan said: “The JCLEC is a strategic partner of INTERPOL in the delivery of our capacity building programmes. Further partnerships with the Indonesia National Police, Australia Federal Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police, combined with all ASEAN member countries, ensure the essential exchange and sharing of best practices throughout Southeast Asia.”

The JCLEC is located within the Indonesian National Police Academy. It is a resource for the region in the fight against transnational crime, with a focus on counter-terrorism, through the coordination of training programmes, seminars and workshops.”

“FBI, Interpol Host Critical Infrastructure Symposium”

July 9, 2014

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on July 8, 2014 released the following:

Director Comey Addresses the Importance of Partnerships

07/08/14

FBI Director James Comey was in Miami yesterday, where he spoke at the opening of the four-day International Law Enforcement Critical Infrastructure Symposium. The event, co-hosted by the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Directorate and Interpol, has drawn senior law enforcement officials from more than 90 countries to explore and share best practices for managing WMD and counterterrorism threats targeted against critical infrastructure and to identify common approaches to protect infrastructure and key resources.

Also participating in the symposium are domestic first responders, corporate security officers, and other U.S. federal partners.

“Today, critical infrastructure is all encompassing,” said Director Comey. “It is everything to our country and our world—our dams, our bridges, our highways, our networks,” he added, explaining that the threats we face to our interconnected systems—such as bioterrorism, agroterrorism, and sabotage—are as diverse as our infrastructure itself.

Comey cited examples of threats to infrastructure, to include the armed assault last April on a California power station, the 2008 attack in Mumbai in which gunmen opened fire at a number of locations, and last year’s deadly shootings at a Kenyan shopping mall. He also noted the ninth anniversary of the July 7, 2013 strikes by terrorists who bombed the London Underground and a double-decker bus in a series of coordinated suicide attacks.

“We know these threats are real,” Comey told the audience. “We must together figure out ways to protect our infrastructure, to work together to strengthen our response to a terrorist attack, a tragic accident, or a natural disaster.”

While touching on topics ranging from terrorism, cyber, and WMD threats to training, partnerships, and intelligence, Comey’s theme throughout underscored the importance of open communication and information sharing with our partners in the U.S. and abroad.

Interpol, as an international police organization, is an important partner on which the Bureau relies heavily to help combat threats of all types. The FBI, through its liaison with Interpol, is able to leverage 190 member countries to address challenges around the globe—a very important ability in a constantly evolving global threat environment.

Comey also highlighted the work of our WMD Directorate, each FBI field office’s WMD coordinator, and our two regional WMD assistant legal attachés in Tbilisi and Singapore. “They integrate our counterterrorism, intelligence, counterintelligence, scientific, and technological components and provide timely analysis of the threat and response,” Comey said. “The goal is to shrink the world to respond to the threat.”

The symposium provides the opportunity for participants to help work toward that goal. Through networking and discussions on how to coordinate and cooperate on critical infrastructure preparedness and protection efforts, attendees will strengthen existing partnerships and develop new ones. By rallying the international community around defeating a common threat, our collective chances of success increase.

Director Comey said that our greatest weapon in this fight is unity, which is developed through intelligence sharing and interagency cooperation. “It is built on the idea that standing together, we are smarter and stronger than when we are standing alone,” he said. “Because no one person—no FBI agent, no police officer, no agency, and no country—can prevent or respond to an attack on critical infrastructure alone.””

“Nepal requests INTERPOL Red Notice for wanted rhino poacher”

December 10, 2013

INTERPOL on December 6, 2013 released the following:

“LYON, France – At the request of Nepal, INTERPOL has issued a Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert, for Rajkumar Praja wanted for rhino poaching and trading internationally in rhino horns.

The 30-year-old Nepalese national is wanted to serve a sentence of 15 years for poaching rhinos in the Chitwan National Park, and the Red Notice comes after law enforcement officials in Nepal dismantled a network of 13 poachers earlier this year.

Nepal’s request for the Red Notice has been welcomed by INTERPOL’s Environmental Security unit as further evidence of the ongoing enforcement efforts by Nepalese authorities which have resulted in a sharp fall in poaching numbers and increased arrests.

“Given the increasingly international nature of wildlife crime, it is important for countries to look beyond their national borders and develop an international fugitive investigation strategy,” said David Higgins, head of the INTERPOL Environmental Security unit.

“With many criminals crossing borders, law enforcement needs to stay one step ahead to successfully address this crime. We would encourage all member countries to make increased use of INTERPOL’s global network in identifying and bringing to justice criminals who seek to profit at the cost of our environment,” added Mr Higgins.

A key area in effectively combating this type of crime is coordination with other regional and international organizations, including the South Asia Wildlife Enforcement Network (SAWEN).

“Wildlife crime is well organized at the transnational level. Collaborative efforts are essential to develop the capacity of the frontline staff to combat this crime,” said Mr Megh Bahadur Pandey, Chief Enforcement Coordinator of SAWEN and Director General of Nepal’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation.

“SAWEN Secretariat and INTERPOL have started their joint efforts to build the capacity of frontline staff in law enforcement in South Asia. SAWEN Secretariat would like to appeal to all wildlife enforcement networks and international agencies to coordinate in combating wildlife crime,” concluded Mr Pandey.

The international trade in wildlife is one of the greatest threats to wildlife conservation efforts, with criminal exploitation now pushing iconic species – such as the tiger, the snow leopard, the elephant and the rhinoceros – to the brink of extinction. INTERPOL’s Project Predator and Project Wisdom support national law enforcement efforts in addressing wildlife crime in Asia and Africa.

All 190 member countries are being encouraged to prioritize international exchange and expand their use of INTERPOL’s specialized tools including its colour-coded Notices system to investigate, locate and apprehend environmental criminals.

The recognition for global action to combat the transnational criminal organizations behind environmental crime was recently highlighted with the announcement of a USD 1 million reward by the US State Department for information leading to the dismantling of the Xaysavang Network.”

Interpol Red Notice issued for Zsolt Hernadi, CEO of Hungary’s Energy Group MOL

October 2, 2013

Reuters on October 1, 2013 released the following:

Croatia issues Interpol arrest warrant for CEO of Hungary’s MOL

Oct 1 (Reuters) – Croatia issued an Interpol arrest warrant for the chief executive of Hungarian energy group MOL, Zsolt Hernadi, on bribery charges, state news agency Hina reported on Tuesday.

Croatia’s former prime minister, Ivo Sanader, was found guilty last year of accepting a 5 million euro ($7 million) bribe in 2008 from MOL in exchange for granting it a dominant position in oil and gas firm INA even without it buying a majority stake.

Sanader has filed an appeal. Both MOL and Sanader firmly deny the accusations.

Croatia also issued a European Arrest Warrant for Hernadi, Hina said, which makes it more likely that he would be handed over to Croatia by any other EU state.

No one at the national police headquarters in Zagreb was immediately available to comment. A MOL spokesperson declined to comment.

The warrants were issued after Hernadi failed to appear for questioning in Zagreb last month in a bribery case. A Croatian court issued a detention order last week – a precondition for issuing an international arrest warrant – citing flight risk.

Hungarian authorities have refused two requests from Croatia to question Hernadi, citing the protection of national interests and saying there was no legal reason to do so.

Hungary’s own investigation in 2011-12 found that neither MOL nor its officials played any role in the alleged bribery.

Hernadi has also denied any wrongdoing.

MOL owns close to 50 percent of INA, while the government owns almost 45 percent. Croatia says MOL’s management rights are excessive and that the Hungarian company has failed to invest adequately in INA’s development.

The two started negotiating a new shareholder agreement last month.”
