Attorney General Galo Chiriboga will deliver the government a project for the creation of the Criminal Court of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur), an initiative designed to investigate and prosecute crimes committed by transnational criminal organizations.
This Ecuadorian proposal, in which the team of the Attorney General´s office (FGE for its Spanish acronym) has worked for four years, has the support of prosecutors and investigators from Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay, pointed out the agency in a statement.
The project seeks that the Criminal Court is able to investigate and prosecute, among others, crimes such as drug trafficking, human trafficking, organ trafficking, money laundering, corruption, cyber crime, trafficking of cultural goods and counterfeit medicines.
The delivery of this project will take place on the occasion of a meeting of attorneys general and prosecutors on Transnational Organized Crime to be held in Quito on 14 and 15 September, at the headquarters of the Unasur.
Ministers and representatives of the judicial area of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela will be present at the meeting.
