The conference to analyse responses in the fight against organised crime and drug trafficking on the "Cocaine Route" ended today in Rome.
The main objective is the search for new work methods to fight against organised crime and cocaine trafficking, which has increased significantly in recent years.
This Conference is expected to produce new alignments which could be the object of future international cooperation projects to fight against the plague of crime and the trafficking of illicit substances. Likewise, the FIIAPP took advantage of its presence to position the Spanish security forces and entities such as the Ministry of Justice or the Public Prosecutor’s Office so they can participate in these new initiatives.
The Conference brought together some 200 participants from 40 countries whose territories, in the majority of cases, form part of the route of illicit trafficking between Latin America, Africa and the European Union.
The leaders of the three FIIAPP projects related to the “Programme to fight against organised crime on the cocaine route”, (SEACOP, AMERIPOL/EU and the Fight against money laundering in West Africa), accompanied by the Director of FIIAPP’s Security and Justice Department, Miguel de Domingo, were present and gave presentations of great interest.
