Hong Kong crime experts run seminar on Asian Organised Crime in PNG

Hong Kong crime experts run show on Asian Organized Crime

TWO very intelligent and high profile police officers from the Hong Kong Criminal Intelligent Bureau were currently in Port Moresby running a workshop on Asian Organized Crime.

International police experts Chief Inspector John Burns and Chief Inspector Yam Wai-Kwok, Gordon were in Port Moresby for few days imparting their expertise to city police in dealing with organized crimes and others associated with it.

The seminar on the Asian Organized Crime is the second of its kind to be held in the city after the African Organized Crime which was held in June some years ago.

Funded under the Australian Federal Policies Law Enforcement Cooperation Program and headed by the Royal Papua New Guinea Police Constabulary the seminar sought to highlight increasing threat of Asian Organized Crime to local law enforcement agencies.

The seminar which was held from 21 – 22 August focused on the complexities of Asian Organization Crimes, including Triads and Chinese culture and society and also highlights banking methods, communication techniques as well as the history, structure and roles of Triad operations.

It has also provided an opportunity for law enforcement officers to gain a first hand knowledge of the latest trends from experts working in the area.

Police Commissioner, Sam Inguba who officially launched the seminar last week said that the Asian Organised Crime was a growing global problem and PNG could not ignore the very real threat this type of activity posed.

“Asian organized crime groups are adept at devising scams to transfer illegally obtained money to other countries, which would have a damaging impact on local economies,” Mr Inguba said.

“And PNG like many smaller countries in the Pacific, could be very vulnerable to organized crime activities. This is why we are taking a leading role in fighting all types of transnational crime,” he added.

And this he said is including Asian Organised Crime, which has the potential to be a major threat to both PNG and the security of the region.

The commissioner while addressing the participants during the workshop, encouraged cooperation between the regional law enforcement agencies working together to strengthen the region’s capability to gather information and evidence against organized crime groups.

Mr Inguba expressed his gratitude to the Australian Federal Police the two officers saying he was grateful as the officers and law enforcement agencies would be gaining some valuable knowledge from the seminar.

“Like many other smaller countries in the Pacific, PNG could be vulnerable to organized crime activities therefore we have taken up the leading role in detecting and investigating all types of transnational crime in the region,” Commissioner Inguba said.
