The project to support the fight against drugs in Peru promotes coordination in combating drugs and organised crime
Judicial and police cooperation is more important than ever in dealing with criminal organisations. The permeability of borders, the free market and new technologies allow criminals to carry out their activities with greater impunity. The project to support the fight against drugs and organised crime in Peru, which is funded by the European Union and managed by FIIAPP, works to promote coordination between police and judicial institutions.
Within the framework of this project, a virtual workshop on international judicial cooperation was organised, which was attended by thirty people from the Peruvian National Police, Judiciary and Public Ministry. During the training, simulations were carried out and real cases presented to analyse the possible mistakes made, seeking solutions and proposing recommendations to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system. In addition, the procedure for accessing international cooperation institutions and networks such as EUROJUST, EUROPOL, AMERIPOL or the Ibero-American Network of Prosecutors was addressed.
Two international specialists, one judicial and the other from the police, worked to improve the inter-institutional coordination of the National Police, the Public Ministry and the judiciary in Peru and contributed to drawing up a roadmap to improve the participation of the operators in the justice system in the different forms of international cooperation.
