INTERPOL European conference builds on regional strength to combat global crimes

May 8, 2012

INTERPOL on May 8, 2012 released the following:

“TEL AVIV, Israel – Developing innovative solutions through building on past experience is key in identifying and addressing future crime threats, chiefs of police and ministers from throughout Europe heard on the opening day of INTERPOL’s 41st European Regional Conference in Tel Aviv.

With transnational issues including cybercrime, terrorism, organized crime, human trafficking, illegal immigration and trafficking in illicit goods high on the agenda of the three-day meeting (8 – 10 May), some 110 senior law enforcement officials from 49 countries and eight international organizations will discuss how to build on regional cooperation and expertise to boost global security.

The Commissioner of the Israeli Police, Inspector General Yohanan Danino, said INTERPOL provided a network of cooperation between the police forces of the world.

“Our language, our uniform and our badges may differ, but the message is the same, we are all committed to the same cause which is the essence of our work, which is to serve.

“This INTERPOL meeting which brings together senior European law enforcement officials will provide us with a stronger platform for our joint efforts in tackling crime and terrorism,” concluded Commissioner Danino.

Addressing the delegates, INTERPOL President Khoo Boon Hui said that learning from European expertise and experiences helps ensure that all INTERPOL member countries keep abreast of the latest trends and developments, particularly in combating cybercrime.

“Criminal gangs now find that transnational and cybercrime are far more rewarding and profitable than other riskier forms of making money,” said INTERPOL President Khoo Boon Hui.

“Globalization and the development of the virtual world offer new and fertile grounds for criminals to ply their illegal trade and commit crimes.

“Our ability to address both known and unknown threats effectively and efficiently serves to further cement our Organization’s position as the leader in securing global safety, and in shaping the security landscape,” concluded President Khoo.

With the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation due to open its doors in Singapore in 2014, delegates will be updated on the close cooperation with Europol which will soon launch the European Cybercrime Centre, and how the two organizations are liaising to ensure the widest possible support to law enforcement regionally and globally.”

Foreign criminals are on the rise: police chief

October 30, 2011

TUOITRENEWS on October 30, 2011 released the following:

“More foreign criminals have committed criminal offenses or carried out transnational frauds in Vietnam, said Colonel Dang Xuan Khang, Chief of the Interpol Vietnam Office.

Khang told VnExpress Newswire about the trend a few days before the 80th General Assembly of the Interpol takes place in Hanoi from October 31 to November 4.

The event will attract 1,000-1,200 participants from 188 member countries.

“As Vietnam is carrying its open policy for international integration, it, as well as many other countries, cannot be immune from transnational criminals,” Khang said.

“The important thing here is that we must actively prevent and control them.” Khanh said, not only in Vietnam, a developing country, but also in developed countries, transnational criminals often take advantage of security loopholes to carry out their crimes.

Foreign criminals often arrive in Vietnam as visitors or tourists to commit crimes or evade police hunts.

Meanwhile, the number of Vietnamese criminals manage to flee abroad is not small either, Khanh said.

Below is Khanh’s other answers to VnExpress.

What kinds of transnational criminals often enter Vietnam?

The first kind is drug traffickers who bring drugs from other countries to Vietnam.

The second is human trafficking criminals who are members of illegal immigration organizations. And the third is thieves and swindlers, including those who use fake credit cards to withdraw money from banks or ATMs.

In addition, criminals using high technologies have attacked Vietnam as well as many other countries.

What measures has the Interpol Vietnam Office taken to prevent foreign criminals, especially those who use high technologies?

Our office has provided local agencies with relevant information we have got from foreign sources and cooperated with them in preventing and controlling foreign criminals using high technologies.

We have also helped training police officers abroad through the cooperation between the Interpol Vietnam Office and other country members of the Interpol.

As many countries have lifted visa requirements, we also cooperate with other agencies to strengthen security control at border gates and airports to prevent criminals from entering or leaving Vietnam.

Vietnam will host the 80th Interpol General Assembly from October 31 to November 3. What is top on the agenda of the event?

At the event, Vietnam will launch a slogan, “Connecting Police for a Safer World – Strong Partnerships, Innovation and Capacity Building.”

The event will focus on sharing information, expanding cooperation between Interpol and other international organizations in criminal prevention and control.

It will also discuss measures to enhance professional abilities of a number of Interpol country members.

What do you say about Interpol Vietnam after 20 years of operation?

In 20 years of operation, Interpol Vietnam has been a reliable “address” to local and foreign organizations.

The relationship between Vietnamese police and their foreign counterparts has been strengthened and expanded.

We have helped local agencies to investigate transnational criminal cases and arrest drug or human traffickers and economic swindlers.

Interpol Vietnam has recently coordinated with other agencies to detain hundreds of foreign criminals.

It has also received supported from police in foreign countries in hunting for and arresting nearly 100 Vietnamese criminals.”
