Annotation: This note updates the report of the United Nations Secretary- General on measures to combat alien-smuggling.
Abstract: Illegal alien-smuggling activities are becoming more threatening to sending, transit, and receiving countries since they undermine national systems for orderly immigration. Alien-smuggling groups are also often involved in other criminal ventures, including trafficking in drugs, arms, hazardous materials, and stolen vehicles. Illegal migration services include forged documentation, transportation, and accommodation. The involvement of organized crime in smuggling immigrants, and its associated problems in the countries of destination, have had negative effects on public perception of legitimate migrants and of migrant communities. This report also contains information on alien- smuggling contributed by the governments of Barbados, Brunei Darussalam, Cuban, France, Germany, Malawi, Nepal, Oman, Spain, and the Syrian Arab Republic, as well as the International Organization for Migration.
