Cooperation Agreement Between Interpol And Un

Asked about the activities of police officers in peacekeeping missions and whether the information exchange agreement between the United Nations and INTERPOL also addressed issues such as the execution of INTERPOL arrest warrants, the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking, Ms. Orler replied that the agreement only concerned peacekeeping operations and did not go beyond. Operations were often mandated to strengthen the capacity of the national police, which could often be carried out using the Interpol database and information. The agreement would be particularly useful in addressing the link between organised crime and conflict. In addition to supporting the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions on counter-terrorism, including law enforcement cooperation and border security, the two organisations will also develop a joint strategic action plan. In this context, at INTERPOL`s Annual General Meeting last week in Singapore, the two global organizations signed a supplementary agreement to improve police cooperation to restore stability in post-conflict areas. The pact included information exchange, interim law enforcement cooperation and support for the security of the national police in post-conflict situations. We also work with private organizations such as NGOs, associations, foundations, academies or companies. These relationships are formalized in various legal instruments, such as cooperation agreements and memoranda of understanding. Each agreement and its provisions are specific to the scope of cooperation; this may include exchange of information, mutual identification projects, access to databases, mutual representation or means of technical assistance. The cooperation between INTERPOL and UNODC leads to strong initiatives such as the CRIMJUST project – which is part of the European Union`s Cocaine Route Programme.

CRIMJUST is jointly led by UNODC, INTERPOL and Transparency International and brings together countries from Latin America, the Caribbean and West Africa. It focuses on identifying and dismantling organized criminal networks through effective criminal responses, including pre- and post-seizure investigations, setting up strong cases for criminal prosecution, and ensuring convictions of criminals. . . .
