Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 aprile 2017

europolCivil Liberties MEPs debated Europol’s report on serious and organised crime with Europol director Rob Wainwright. Europol’s director Rob Wainwright presented the report on ‘Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment, SOCTA, 2017 to Civil Liberties MEPs on Monday afternoon. The report identifies a number of threats affecting the internal security of the European Union, such as document fraud, money laundering and online trade in illicit goods and services, and gives recommendations to the Council of Justice and Home Affairs Ministers on priorities for the coming four years 2017 – 2021. According to Europol’s analysis, 5.000 criminal networks operate in Europe with people from more than 180 nationalities. The groups are diverse, flexible and can adapt easily to new environments. Drug trafficking counts as the largest criminal market, but also cybercrime, migrant smuggling, trafficking in human beings and organised property crime, are identified as serious threats and should be priorities for the future fight against organised crime, the report says.The exploitation of the rapid technological developments, such as the use of social media and the dark net, smuggling of unaccompanied minors, fraudulent ID-cards, and whether existing tools to fight cross border crime are sufficient, were among the topics raised by MEPs in the debate. In a separate debate following the SOCTA presentation, MEPs discussed the fight against cybercrime with experts from Europol’s Cybercrime Centre, Eurojust, civil society and data protection experts.
