“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.”

Serbian Determination Results in Arrest of Goran Hadzic, the Last Balkans War Fugitive

July 21, 2011

INTERPOL on July 20, 2011 released the following:

“LYON, France – Today’s arrest by Serbian authorities of Goran Hadzic, wanted by a United Nations war crimes tribunal on crimes against humanity and war crimes charges, and who was the subject of an INTERPOL Red Notice, or internationally wanted persons alert, has been praised by the world police body as an important step in international justice.

Hadzic, who faces a number of charges brought by the UN’s International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) including the murder of hundreds of civilians, was the last remaining fugitive of the 161persons indicted by the Tribunal.

INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said that Hadzic’s arrest, which comes less than two months after the capture of former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic, marked a milestone for justice, not only in Europe, but across the globe.’

“It is thanks to the Serbian police, who should be commended for their continued efforts that Goran Hadzic is now in custody after more than seven years on the run.

“Today’s arrest is also significant in recognition of the work of the ICTY and what they so far achieved in the 18 years since its creation, and INTERPOL is pleased to have supported the Tribunal in bringing those accused to justice,” concluded the head of INTERPOL.

INTERPOL’s Fugitive Investigative Support Unit at the General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, France has been supporting investigations by member countries and International Criminal Tribunals and Courts into war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity since 1994, liaising closely with its network of specialist investigators and National Central Bureaus in the exchange of information and leads.

In addition to its ongoing co-operation with the ICTY, officers continue to work closely with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (UN-ICTR) as well as with the International Criminal Court and the Special Court for Sierra Leone, which has already led to a number of arrests worldwide.”
