“INTERPOL to host largest-ever gathering of Ministers to address contemporary violence issues”

November 2, 2012

INTERPOL on November 1, 2012 released the following:

“ROME, Italy – INTERPOL’s General Assembly will bring together Justice, Home Affairs and Security Ministers from some 110 countries for the largest ever such gathering, which will focus on criminal violence issues ranging from human trafficking to terrorist activities.

The Ministerial meeting, which marks the beginning of the four-day (5 – 8 November) conference in Rome, Italy with the theme ‘Challenges for Police Facing Contemporary Violence’ will bring to the table senior government officials from around the globe.

INTERPOL’s Secretary General Ronald K. Noble stated, “This unprecedented gathering of ministers combined with our General Assembly will provide strong support for greater global cooperation in confronting ever-increasing and wide-ranging violent criminal activities.

“Transnational criminal violence is expanding, profiting from developments in technology and international economic challenges. Reduced budgets for law enforcement in far too many nations necessitates even greater levels of mutual support across borders in our continued efforts towards a safer world,” concluded the INTERPOL Chief.

A joint Ministerial outcome declaration will be issued at the conclusion of the day’s discussions, to identify viable policies and strategies which can be adapted to the unique security situations of cities, nations and regions, supported by greater shared intelligence and increased use of INTERPOL’S comprehensive databases covering a wide range of multi-national criminal activities.

INTERPOL is the largest international police organization with 190 member countries. Its work supports local national and regional law enforcement in a range of crime areas including; terrorism, organized crime, environmental crime, war crimes, maritime piracy, trafficking in illicit goods, weapons smuggling, human trafficking, money laundering, child sexual abuse, corruption and cybercrime.”

Vietnam police chief’s visit to INTERPOL focuses on role of international police cooperation in boosting regional security

September 28, 2011

INTERPOL on September 20, 2011 released the following:

“LYON, France – Vietnam’s Director General of Police, Maj. Gen. Phan Van Vinh, has 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.

With Hanoi soon hosting the 80th INTERPOL General Assembly (31 October – 3 November), the visit by Vietnam’s police chief reviewed key transnational organized crime issues such as human trafficking and child sexual abuse. It also saw the announcement that Vietnam is to second a police officer to INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters for the first time. The Vietnamese police officer will be joining the world police body’s specialist Crimes Against Children unit.

In this respect, Maj. Gen. Phan said “Vietnam is proud to second its first ever officer to INTERPOL’s General Secretariat. Countering transnational crime threats today, including crimes against children, requires collaboration via INTERPOL’s global law enforcement network at the national, regional and international level.”

“International police cooperation with Vietnam is vital not just for the security of its citizens but also for Southeast Asia and beyond the region, at a time when globalization has seen the expansion and diversification of transnational crime,” said Secretary General Noble.

“Vietnam’s decision to second an officer to INTERPOL’s General secretariat demonstrates its commitment to support international police cooperation and its understanding that the transnational crime threats which are faced by every country cannot be dealt with in isolation,” added the head of INTERPOL.

Mr Noble cited Vietnam’s involvement in projects against Asian organized crime networks, including Operations SOGA I (2007) and SOGA II (2008) against soccer gambling, as further examples of Vietnam’s active involvement in international police collaboration. Both operations resulted in more than 1,200 arrests and the seizure of cash and assets worth some USD 17 million.

Extending access to INTERPOL’s global police tools and services beyond INTERPOL’s National central Bureau in Hanoi also topped the agenda during Maj. Gen. Phan’s visit, which included a review of progress on the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation due to open in Singapore in early 2014, as well as of the INTERPOL Travel Document which will facilitate the international travel of INTERPOL officials when assisting in transnational investigations or urgent deployments.

Vietnam’s police chief was accompanied by Dang Xuan Khang, Head of NCB Hanoi; Tran Duy Thanh, Director of Anti-Corruption Department; Nguyen Duc Chung, Deputy Director of Hanoi Metropolitan Police; and Nguyen Huu Ngoc, Deputy Director of Information and Database Centre on Transnational Crime, NCB Hanoi.”
