Annotation: This report presents a table that shows each of 35 state parties' responses to a questionnaire that solicited information on each country's efforts to comply with the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime as of the second reporting cycle for monitoring compliance.
Abstract: The table shows the "yes" or "no" answer that each country gave to each of 27 questions pertinent to progress made in implementing the provisions of the Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime. The first question asks whether or not the country has a domestic regulatory and supervisory regime for entities susceptible to money laundering. The second question asks whether the country's legal framework enables law enforcement and regulatory authorities, as well as judicial authorities, to cooperate and exchange information at the national level. This is followed by a question on the implementation of measures for detecting and monitoring the movement of cash and appropriate negotiable instruments across a country's borders. Another question asks about the existence of legislation that authorizes the appropriate use of special investigative techniques in dealing with organized crime. A series of questions focus on whether the state parties are using specific measures to encourage current or former participants in organized crime activities to become witnesses against other participants in the criminal enterprise. Another series of questions addresses the existence of services for victims of transnational organized crime. Other questions focus on measures taken to improve international cooperation in countering transnational organized crime. Although the questionnaire allows for respondents to elaborate on some of the "yes" and "no" answers on appended forms, such information is not included in this document.
