Belarus’ Investigative Committee is interested in signing an agreement on cooperation with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Crime has no nationality and no borders!
The information was made public by the head of Belarus’ Investigative Committee Ivan Noskevich in an interview with BelTA.
The head of the Investigative Committee Ivan Noskevich will meet the FBI top-ranking officials during his working visit to USA.
In the run-up to the visit, the official talked about the cooperation with the agency, the biggest joint operations and his expectations of the upcoming meetings.
“We know that crime has no nationality. We can also say it has no borders. It is precisely the reason why we should keep in touch with colleagues from around the world.
We are interested in signing a document on cooperation, and I sincerely hope that our meeting will be the first step towards this goal,” Ivan Noskevich said.
He noted that currently there are no written agreement between the agencies and the cooperation is based on the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (2000) and the United Nation Convention against Corruption (2003).
“It is important that the United States also shows interest in bilateral cooperation.
Practice has showed that there are many cyber criminals in Belarus who commit unlawful acts, including against US citizens and US companies.
A number of crimes recently solved and a number of persons recently arrested in Belarus, including with the help of the FBI, testifies to the fact.”
Recall that recently the committee in association with the FBI apprehended a member of the international cybercrime group Andromeda from Gomel Oblast.
