INTERPOL-EU ties securing borders & preventing crime

Uploaded by INTERPOLHQ to YouTube on March 20, 2012 released the following:

INTERPOL-EU ties securing borders & preventing crime

“INTERPOL: Interview with Cecilia Malmstrom, EU Home Affairs Commissioner. 15 March 2012

INTERPOL a key partner for a secure Europe, says EU Commissioner Malmström

LYON, France — A secure Europe needs global law enforcement support, with INTERPOL a key partner in meeting security challenges, European Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström told police chiefs at the closing of the INTERPOL Heads of National Central Bureaus conference.

Addressing the 270 senior police officials from 148 countries, Commissioner Malmström said that to effectively fight organized crime and cybercrime, which pose the greatest risks to EU security, the need for partnerships with countries beyond Europe is essential.

“INTERPOL, with its National Central Bureaus in 190 member countries is a key partner for the European Union in addressing these global threats,” said Commissioner Malmström.

“Day-to-day cooperation between INTERPOL and police forces in the EU member states goes back many years and is invaluable in linking EU criminal intelligence with INTERPOL’s databases and global network.”

Highlighting the need for close cooperation in tackling these shared threats, the Commissioner explained her plans to establish a European Cybercrime Centre to work closely with the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore, which will include a state-of-the-art facility for boosting cyber security and countering cybercrime, to assist in the streamlining of regional and global investigations.

An important element in the enhanced cooperation between the two organizations was the opening of the INTERPOL liaison office in Brussels in 2009. Pierre Reuland, the Special Representative of INTERPOL to the European Union, said that ‘when it comes to global police cooperation INTERPOL is the natural partner to link EU member countries and agencies to the rest of the world’.

In meetings with Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and other senior INTERPOL officials, Commissioner Malmström discussed a range of activities where the EU and INTERPOL work closely together, particularly under the EU’s Internal Security Strategy.

“INTERPOL is working closer than ever with European bodies such as Europol, Frontex, Cepol and Eurojust in crime areas as diverse as maritime piracy, human trafficking and counterfeiting,” said Secretary General Noble.

“The European Union has recognized INTERPOL’s unique capacity to supplement law enforcement efforts at the European level, particularly in the effective management of borders where transnational criminals are at their most vulnerable,” added the INTERPOL Chief.

An EU-funded programme has seen expansion of access to INTERPOL’s unique global database of Stolen and Lost Travel Documents throughout the Commonwealth of Independent States, Southeast Asia, Africa and the Americas, helping to secure borders and identify criminals attempting to enter Europe, and elsewhere, using false identities.

Plans for the West African Police Information System (WAPIS) being developed with INTERPOL and funded by the EU were also discussed during the high-level meeting. The WAPIS project will facilitate the collection, centralization, management, sharing and analysis of police information on a national, regional and global level to more effectively tackle crime areas such as drug trafficking, illegal immigration, money laundering and weapons trafficking.”

Hackers reportedly linked to ‘Anonymous’ group targeted in global operation supported by INTERPOL

February 29, 2012

INTERPOL on February 28, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France ‒ An international operation supported by INTERPOL against suspected hackers believed to be linked to the so-called ‘Anonymous’ hacking group has seen the arrest of some 25 individuals across four countries in Latin America and Europe.

Operation Unmask was launched in mid-February following a series of coordinated cyber-attacks originating from Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain against the Colombian Ministry of Defence and presidential websites, as well as Chile’s Endesa electricity company and its National Library, among others.

The international operation was carried out by national law enforcement officers in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain, under the aegis of INTERPOL’s Latin American Working Group of Experts on Information Technology (IT) Crime, which facilitated the sharing of intelligence following operational meetings in the four participating countries.

Some 250 items of IT equipment and mobile phones were also seized during searches of 40 premises across 15 cities during the operation, as well as payment cards and cash, as part of a continuing investigation into the funding of illegal activities carried out by the suspected hackers who are aged 17 to 40.

“This operation shows that crime in the virtual world does have real consequences for those involved, and that the Internet cannot be seen as a safe haven for criminal activity, no matter where it originates or where it is targeted,” said Bernd Rossbach, Acting INTERPOL Executive Director of Police Services.

INTERPOL working parties on IT crime were created to facilitate the development of strategies, technologies and information on the latest IT crime methods. There are regional working parties for Africa, the Americas, Asia and the South Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East and North Africa.

The main activities of the working parties rest on three pillars: facilitating operations against IT crime among INTERPOL’s 190 member countries, capacity building and addressing emerging threats.”

INTERPOL Group of Experts on Corruption recognized for its valuable contribution

February 6, 2012

INTERPOL on February 2, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – The final meeting of the INTERPOL Group of Experts on Corruption (IGEC) saw members formally recognized for their contribution by INTERPOL’s Secretary General Ronald K. Noble at a ceremony at its General Secretariat headquarters.

Key among the achievements of the IGEC since its creation in 1999 are the production of the Global Standards to Combat Corruption in Police Forces/Services and the Library of Best Practices, comprehensive documents which have been accepted worldwide as essential texts for corruption investigators.

Secretary General Noble said the organization, and each of its 190 member countries, owed the IGEC members a debt of gratitude for their outstanding and dedicated service.

“The INTERPOL Group of Experts on Corruption has done much more than accomplish its mandate. It has created a strong foundation in which INTERPOL anchors its present and future anti-corruption initiatives. This foundation is a lasting legacy to our strong and successful partnership for the past 11 years,” the INTERPOL chief told the gathered experts.

The final meeting of the IGEC marked the completion of the group’s mandate and the development of INTERPOL’s anti-corruption activities, including initiatives to assist law enforcement bodies in recovering and returning stolen public funds to victim countries. A key element in this is the INTERPOL Global Focal Point Platform, a network of specialists available worldwide 24/7 to respond to emergency requests for assistance where a rapid response is crucial to law enforcement in order to avoid losing the money trail.

Secretary General Noble presented medals and certificates to Chairman of the IGEC, Hon. Justice Barry O’Keefe AM, former Supreme Court Judge of New South Wales, Australia and Commissioner of the ICAC in New South Wales; Vice-Chairman of the IGEC Michael Hershman, President of the Fairfax Group and co-founder of Transparency International; Sue Akers, Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police Service; Kevin Ford, Managing Director and Chief Compliancy Officer with Regulatory DataCorp; Dr Michel Girodo, Professor in Criminology at Ottawa University, Canada; Paul Lachal Roberts with the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) and Abu Kassim Bin Mohamed, Commissioner with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption.

Other IGEC members not present at the ceremony: Mark Codd, Chief Security Officer with Siemens; Theodore Greenberg of the World Bank; Wolfgang Hetzer, Anticorruption Advisor (OLAF); Martin Kreutner of the International Anti-Corruption Academy; Patrick Moulette, Head of the Anti-Corruption Division, Organization for Economic Co-operation And Development; Professor Pakdee Pothisiri, National Anti-Corruption Commission, Thailand and Ryan Wong, Director of Investigations, Independent Commission Against Corruption, Hong Kong, China.”

Belarus officially recognizes INTERPOL passport

January 19, 2012

INTERPOL on January 18, 2012 released the following:

“Decision reinforces already close cooperation with INTERPOL

LYON, France – Belarus today became the latest INTERPOL member country to officially recognize the world police organization’s passport, providing visa waiver status for individuals travelling on official business.

Minister of Internal Affairs for Belarus, Anatoly Kuleshov signed the agreement during a visit to the world police body’s General Secretariat headquarters where he met with Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and other senior officials.

The agreement means that INTERPOL officials from any of the Organization’s 190 member countries can enter Belarus without a visa in order to carry out official duties on INTERPOL-related matters when invited by Belarusian authorities.

“Belarus is proud to officially recognize the INTERPOL passport as additional evidence of our steadfast commitment to enhance international police cooperation with all INTERPOL member countries,” said Minister Kuleshov who was accompanied on the visit by Head of International Cooperation, Mikhail Starikovich and Head of the INTERPOL National Central Bureau in Minsk, Alexander Petran.

Following the deadly terrorist attack on a Minsk subway in April 2011 in which 14 people died and more than 100 were badly injured, Belarus ensured that INTERPOL and all its member countries had access to the fingerprints retrieved from the crime scene. Checks through INTERPOL’s databases confirmed that fingerprints from the suspect in the April attack, matched those of the suspect charged in connection with another bombing in Minsk in July 2008.

“By sharing important crime related information with INTERPOL and by recognizing the INTERPOL passport, Belarus enhances the security not only of its country and citizens, but of all INTERPOL’s 190 member countries,” said Mr Noble.

“If Belarus had not shared terrorist related information with INTERPOL, then the Minsk bombing suspect would have been able to move freely throughout Europe and the world to cause harm and even kill many others.

“Similarly, police worldwide in possession of the INTERPOL passport will be able to assist Belarus as requested at the scenes of terrorist attacks, major crimes or natural disasters, where time can be of the essence,” added the head of the world police body.

“As more and more countries officially recognize the INTERPOL passport, we will ensure an even faster response time by police worldwide working under the umbrella of INTERPOL and invited by member countries to assist,” concluded Mr Noble.

The INTERPOL General Assembly in Qatar in 2010 saw the official adoption of the INTERPOL Travel Document initiative to enable the Organization to provide faster on-site support to member countries requesting assistance.

Countries which have already recognized the INTERPOL Travel Document are: Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Benin, Botswana, Brazil, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, France, Guinea, Jordan, Laos, Latvia, Liberia, Madagascar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Senegal, Rwanda, Seychelles, Singapore, Sudan, Swaziland and Tanzania.”

Italy’s head of criminal police visits INTERPOL ahead of Rome General Assembly

January 16, 2012

INTERPOL on January 16, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – Italy’s Director General of Criminal Police and Deputy Director General of Public Security, Prefect Francesco Cirillo, today met with INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble at INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters to discuss security measures aimed at enhancing international cooperation against cross-border crime.

With Rome hosting the 81st INTERPOL General Assembly later this year (5-8 November), the visit by Prefect Cirillo provided an opportunity to review preparations for the conference which will cover key security issues such as transnational organized crime, human and drug trafficking, terrorism, corruption, cybercrime and stolen works of art.

The role of international law enforcement cooperation and the global tools and services INTERPOL provides its 190 member countries against international crime will top the conference agenda.

During his meeting with Prefect Cirillo, Secretary General Noble underlined Italy’s ‘strong leadership’ in international law enforcement cooperation, and said INTERPOL’s General Assembly in Rome was set to determine the international security agenda ‘at a time when globalization has seen the expansion and diversification of transnational crime’.

The General Assembly is composed of delegates appointed by the governments of member countries. As INTERPOL’s supreme governing body, it meets once a year and takes all the major decisions affecting general policy, the resources needed for international cooperation, working methods, finances and programmes of activities. It also elects the Organization’s Executive Committee. Each member country represented has one vote.”

Visit by Romania’s Inspector General of Police to INTERPOL emphasizes role of international law enforcement cooperation

January 13, 2012

INTERPOL on January 13, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – Enhancing international cooperation against transnational organized crime was the focus of a meeting today between Romania’s Inspector General of Police, Liviu Popa, INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble, at the world police body’s General Secretariat headquarters.

Law enforcement initiatives against cross-border crimes such as human trafficking, illegal immigration, drug trafficking and financial fraud, as well as cooperation in identifying and locating international fugitives, topped the agenda during Mr Popa’s visit, which also provided an opportunity for reviewing the global tools and services INTERPOL provides to its 190 member countries.

“Cooperation with INTERPOL is a priority area for Romanian police. My meeting with Secretary General Noble provided an important opportunity to reaffirm the need for international cooperation with INTERPOL, and to identify areas where we can collaborate even more closely for the benefit of citizens and police in Romania as well as beyond its borders,” said Romania’s Inspector General of Police, Liviu Popa.

With Romania the third highest-user amongst countries in the Schengen zone of INTERPOL’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents database – which contains 31.3 million entries from 161 member countries – Secretary General Noble congratulated Mr Popa on Romania’s “exemplary and active” collaboration with INTERPOL and the global law enforcement community.

In their meeting, Mr Noble also lauded Romania’s role in the recent arrest in Spain of a Romanian national wanted internationally. Close collaboration between INTERPOL’s National Central Bureaus in Romania and Spain and INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support (FIS) unit at its General Secretariat headquarters led to the arrest in Spain in October 2011 of Romanian Red Notice suspect Ioan Clamparu.

The wanted man had been on the run from his native Romania for eight years where he has been sentenced to 13 years in jail for people and drugs trafficking. Clamparu was one of 450 international fugitives targeted by INTERPOL’s Operation Infra-Red in July 2010 which aimed to locate individuals convicted of serious crimes.

“The decision by Romania to share information on its own crime case with the international police community, and the coordination between INTERPOL’s National Central Bureaus in Bucharest and Madrid and its fugitives unit in Lyon, were crucial to this case,” said Mr Noble.

“International law enforcement collaboration between INTERPOL and Romania is therefore vital for the region and beyond. A global collaborative approach to security involving countries sharing intelligence and maximizing the use of INTERPOL’s global police tools is today key to effectively protecting citizens not just in Romania but also in the region and worldwide,” added Secretary General Noble.

Talks during Mr Popa’s visit also included a review of progress on the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation due to open in Singapore in early 2014. Mr Popa was accompanied by the Head of NCB Bucharest and Police Chief Commissioner Lacramioara Petrescu, as well as by Police Commissioner and Director of Romanian’s International Police Cooperation Centre, Mihai Lucian Friptu.”

Austrian security chief’s visit to INTERPOL underlines country’s international security role

January 12, 2012

INTERPOL on January 12, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France ‒ Austria’s Director General for Public Security, Herbert Anderl, today met with INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble at INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters to discuss security measures aimed at enhancing international cooperation against transnational crime.

The visit by Mr Anderl underlined the close relationship between Austria and INTERPOL, and provided an opportunity for reviewing a range of key security issues such as cross-border organized crime, financial crime and cooperation in identifying and locating international fugitives. INTERPOL’s global security initiatives and the provision of its global tools and services to its 190 member countries also topped the agenda.

“Austria’s public security authorities see international police collaboration with INTERPOL as a priority. They fully recognize INTERPOL’s vital role in tackling international crime in all its forms, through the effective cooperation of police forces around the world,” said Austria’s Director General for Public Security, Herbert Anderl.

During his meeting with Mr Anderl, the head of INTERPOL hailed Austria’s ‘‘crucial role” in the recent conviction in a US court of an Afghan national wanted internationally for a series of rapes after a DNA match made by INTERPOL led to the suspect’s arrest in Salzburg, Austria in 2010.

Ali Achekzai, aged 33, who fled to Austria from the US after he was accused of rape in 2004, was convicted by a court in California last month of sexually assaulting two women and attempting to sexually assault a third. He was extradited to the US from Austria in 2010 after US detectives sent a DNA profile linked to the US attacks to INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon in December 2009. INTERPOL’s global DNA database matched the profile with another one submitted by Austria as part of an investigation into a rape in Salzburg in April 2009.

“The decision by Austria to share information on its own crime case with the international police community, and the coordination between INTERPOL’s National Central Bureaus in Vienna, Washington and its DNA unit in Lyon, were crucial to this case,” said Mr Noble.

In 2005, Austria became the first country to adopt the charter governing the automated use of and access to the database of DNA profiles at the INTERPOL General Secretariat. INTERPOL’s DNA database – the only global database of its kind – was created in 2003 and currently contains approximately more than 120,000 profiles submitted by 61 member countries resulting in 364 international matches flagged to the affected countries.

The head of INTERPOL further outlined how Austria’s involvement in key INTERPOL initiatives such as Project Pink Panthers, coordinating the worldwide campaign against an international gang of jewel thieves, or Project Millennium, involving 42 countries to target transnational Eurasian organized crime by sharing and contributing intelligence to INTERPOL’s databases, further demonstrated its commitment to international law enforcement cooperation.

“Austria has consistently demonstrated its support for international police cooperation to deliver results on the ground. It understands that the transnational crime threats which are faced by every country cannot be dealt with in isolation,” added Secretary General Noble.

A review of progress on the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation due to open in Singapore in early 2014, and its role against high-tech and cyber-crime, also topped the agenda during Mr Anderl’s visit, which also included the Deputy Director of Austria’s Criminal Intelligence Service, Andrea Raninger, the Head of INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau in Vienna, Thomas Herko, and the Head of Austria’s Unit for Bilateral and Multilateral Affairs, Günther Sablattnig.”

INTERPOL appoints senior Ugandan police officer as its first female director from Africa

January 12, 2012

INTERPOL on January 10, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – The world’s largest international police organization has appointed Ugandan police officer Elizabeth Kuteesa to lead a key department at its General Secretariat headquarters, marking the first appointment of an African woman as an INTERPOL director.

Announcing the appointment of Elizabeth Kuteesa as Director of INTERPOL’s National Central Bureau and Regional Police Services (NRPS) unit, INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said the promotion of the former Director of the Criminal Investigations Directorate with the Ugandan Police demonstrated the global role of African women within the international law enforcement community.

“As the world’s largest police organization with 190 member countries it is vital that INTERPOL’s staff at its General Secretariat not only reflect this diversity but also bring the relevant policing experience and expertise in order to meet the needs of our National Central Bureaus worldwide,” said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“With global responsibility for liaising with our member countries, Elizabeth Kuteesa’s appointment is a mark both of her achievements as well as of the high calibre of staff seconded to INTERPOL by its member countries in Africa and other regions.”

“Through this appointment INTERPOL has once again demonstrated its ability to attract the finest policemen and policewomen committed to enhancing international police cooperation,” concluded the head of INTERPOL.

Since 2007 Ms Kuteesa has served at INTERPOL as Assistant Director for the Africa region, and previously held a range of positions with the Ugandan Police including Officer in Charge of the Anti-Narcotics Squad at CID Headquarters.

As head of the NRPS directorate, Ms Kuteesa will oversee the unit’s activities across four main domains: providing support and coordination for INTERPOL’s National Central Bureaus, coordinating the activities of its Regional Bureaus and Liaison Offices, coordinating the implementation of cooperation agreements between INTERPOL and regional bodies or entities, and implementing recommendations from statutory regional conferences and INTERPOL business plans for the regions.”
