Draft counter organized crime global strategy

  1. 1. Draft Global Strategy to Counter Organized Crime 1. Special IMF session to agree to • • upgraded bank transfer software create a new intergovernmental body (IB) to share information on money laundering, and coordinate prosecution strategies 1. The IB formalized under • • • • the IMF some UN mechanism like UNDCP a transition unit at OECD, or as a new international organization established through a future protocol to the ICC and/or the Palermo Treaty.
  2. 2. Strategy (continued) 3. The IB would use information technology to • • • • monitor the money laundering locations publish money laundering trends create a list on those money launders prioritized by amount of money laundered on a real-time basis; hence, provide a more empirical basis to select priorities for global collaboration
  3. 3. Strategy (continued) 4. New software • • not backwardly compatible banks cooperate or be frozen out of the international system 4. Deputize Courts - Sovereignty Issue – • • location for prosecution would be set by the IB on a lottery or some random basis among previously volunteered courts with trained personnel (training of judges, magistrates and prosecutors and related regulatory agencies, police, army, custom officials, financial investigators, tax auditors etc.) this might come under a new protocol to the Palermo Treaty, the ICC, or a new treaty to “deputize” courts as the UN Security Council “deputizes” armies into Peace-keeping forces). The international agreement would have to include that the IB would be able to authorize the freezing of assets prior to arrest and the transfer of assets after conviction.
  4. 4. Strategy (continued) 6. Staff in the IB’s situation room would: • Identify money laundering locations and rank order accounts • Identify a top criminal and prepare the legal case • Identify his assets, access what can be frozen, and readiness of banks to freeze them (MOUs for freezing assets with pre-decision protocol for court orders) • Identify where the criminal is now and readiness of local authorities to make the arrest • Deputize court and its readiness to move immediately • Then and only then would all actions be executed at once, if anyone of the conditions were not met, then go down the rank ordered list of top money launders to the next until all conditions are met • Do only one at a time, until money from assets of the convicted can afford to prosecute two at a time.
  5. 5. Strategy (continued) 7 8 9 Part of the strategy is to use global resources of the IB on one arrest at a time. As cases are won, funds from frozen assets could go into the IB to allow it to coordinate on more than one arrest at a time. Although initial funding for the IB would come from governments, it would no longer take money from governments but earn its way via successful convictions' disbursements of frozen assets. Government police and courts used would also be paid from such frozen assets. Once the trial is underway and the evidence seems complete, the IB could then focus on the next person on the list.
