Italy hails UAE's anti-drug law enforcement system

posted on 29/08/2006: 1570 views

The UAE has one of the strongest anti-drug law enforcement systems in the region, according to the Director General of the Italian Anti-Narcotics Service.

Carlo Gualdi is heading a delegation to the UAE to pursue progress in cooperation between the two countries within the framework of the agreement signed between them last year. Speaking to Gulf News, Gualdi said his next trip is to Afghanistan, a country accounting for about 83 per cent of the world's trade in opium products.

"It is necessary for the UAE to turn its attention to the international aspects of drug trafficking, after accomplishing a solid system internally. Huge amounts of untraceable money is being laundered worldwide and increasing amounts of drugs are being trafficked through the Middle East," he said.

"The problem now is that people working on the financial aspects of the problem are professional and operate internationally. With the new technologies and methods such as e-commerce and the like, we have to move fast as well to be able to trace and hunt down these people."

The Italian delegation met Colonel Murad Mohammad Murad, Director of the Investigation Department at the Ministry of Interior, and Colonel Abdullah Ali Rashid Al Bedawi, Deputy Director General of the Directorate General for Criminal Security of the UAE's Ministry of Interior.

The two parties discussed technical issues, as well as means of exchanging information, as well as the plan to organise the first training course for UAE officers, which is to include the financial aspects of the crime.

Paolo Dionisi, the new Italian ambassador to the country, said: "This is only one of the many aspects of future cooperation that is currently being planned between the UAE and Italy." (Gulf News)
