Italy, UNDOC sign MoU on transnational crime

ROME, JULY 29 – The Department of Public Security of the Italian Ministry of the Interior and the United Nations have signed a strategic memorandum to combat all forms of transnational crime.

“We cannot fight crime alone and no country more than Italy has promoted this principle,” said the Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Vienna, Under-Secretary General Ghada Fathi Waly, signing the document together with the Chief of Police-Director General of Public Security, Prefect Lamberto Giannini, at the headquarters of the Office for the Coordination and Planning of Police Forces.

The signing ceremony took place in the presence of the Deputy Director General in charge of the Coordination and Planning of Police Forces, Prefect Maria Teresa Sempreviva, and the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Ettore Sequi, testifying to the importance that Italian diplomacy attaches to the work of the Department of Public Security in the international arena. In his address, Sequi underlined how the Italian security system, an essential segment in support of the country’s foreign policy, boasts a long-standing commitment and unparalleled expertise in the fight against terrorism and transnational crime in all its forms: organized, serious and emerging. “The agreement confirms Italy’s strong commitment
in the fight against international crime,” commented the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Twitter.

The memorandum is the result of teamwork between the International Relations Service of the Coordination Office, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with its offices in Rome and Vienna, and the United Nations. It has once again reaffirmed the capabilities of the Italian system in which the binomial ‘diplomacy-law enforcement’ is an irreplaceable pillar for the country. (@OnuItalia)
