    Prioritising Serious and Organized Environmental Crime

    Prioritising Serious and Organized Environmental Crime

    https://oc24.globalinitiative.net/ (24hr Conference on Global Organized Crime)
    This https://oc24.globalinitiative.net/1b/ (session) will look at environmental crimes and how they are usually treated as the poor relation of organised crime types: under-resourced, treated as an afterthought and more likely to be the responsibility of agriculture departments than police forces. Despite many environmental crimes being accepted as a form of serious, transnational, organised crime, they are universally treated as a low priority, struggling for recognition against other crime types. Yet this crime group, which includes wildlife trafficking, pollution crimes, and illicit deforestation, pose an immeasurable risk to life on earth - far greater than any other crime type. We argue why all nations must treat environmental crimes as a global priority.

    Recovering Dirty, Secret Money

    https://oc24.globalinitiative.net/ (24 Hour Conference on Global Organized Crime)
    This policy-focused https://oc24.globalinitiative.net/15a/ (session )sees four practitioners from law enforcement backgrounds, discuss the broad issues of trying to combat money laundering, and recovering criminal wealth against a backdrop of inadequate international crime control policies. Jonathan Benton (Intelligent Sanctuary Ltd) will first address the “bigger picture” of asset recovery, focusing on large, cross-border asset recoveries and the technology required to carry out such operations. Richard Gould (Illicit Finance Consulting Ltd) will then discuss the need to classify money laundering as a predicate crime, and the impact this would have on investigations at both the international and national levels. Following this, Alan Johnstone (Financial Investigations Division, Jamaica) will talk about the inadequacies of international anti-money laundering laws when applied to small island developing states such as Jamaica, where there is a high debt burden and weak economic, political and law enforcement structures. Finally, Tim Connolly (HMRC), will circle back to the “bigger picture” and the role of international organised crime groups and how they manipulate VAT scams.
