Cooperation among Justice Systems


The characteristics of organised crime are its international dimension, its significant economic volume and the complexity of its operations. They are detrimental to the general economy, weaken institutions and cause public insecurity and other social problems.

The investigation and prosecution of those responsible requires a significant effort from the tax and judicial authorities in different areas. On the one hand, it requires clear laws and strong, well organised institutions with specialised personnel to achieve results in the internal order. On the other hand, effective direct and immediate international cooperation, between authorities in different countries. And thirdly, effective systems that prevent those who violate the rules of coexistence from taking economic advantage of their effects.
