Chapter Summary

During the 1990s, when the South Korean economy witnessed rapid development and growth, which was accompanied by significant deregulation, organised crime gradually became more sophisticated, more widespread, and more internationalised. The Republic of Korea signed the Convention against Transnational Organised Crime on December 13, 2000, but has not yet implemented the Convention provisions domestically. In addition to the Criminal Code provision, Korea's Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Violence contains a special offence in art. 4 to criminalise persons who set up, direct, participate in, or otherwise support criminal organisations that aim to engage in violent crimes.
