Chapter Summary

In the so-called 'war on organised crime', offences targeting the structures and participants of criminal organisations are seen by some as the ultimate weapon. Organised crime continues to exist in every society in the region, regardless of the existence of specialised offences. The new offences are, at best, a new tool to prevent and suppress organised crime in innovative ways. They seek to criminalise persons that have thus far been immune from prosecutions despite the persons' intimate involvement in very serious offences. The criminal offences under the Palermo Convention are accompanied by a set of measures that enhance investigations and law enforcement cooperation, both domestically and internationally.
