National Strategy to Combat Organised Crime and Serious Offences

National Strategy to Combat Organised Crime and Serious Offences

Incorporates the investigation and neutralisation of the economic and financial structures of criminal organisations

 

The government has begun to implement the National Strategy to Combat Organised Crime and Serious Offences 2019-2023, which seeks to provide the State law enforcement agencies and other public bodies with a unified and modern framework of reference to prevent and fight these criminal phenomena that so seriously harm society.

This new text, published on Friday, 22 February in the Official Journal of Spain (Spanish acronym: BOE), revises and updates the previous strategy in force from 2011 to 2014, and is adapted to changes in certain criminal, technological, social and international aspects from a comprehensive approach.

Noteworthy among its main aims are the dismantling of criminal structures, reducing their actions, obstructing the creation of new gangs, reducing the impact of this type of crime on society and combating the growing ties between terrorism and organised crime.

«Organised crime, due to its cross-border nature, its flexibility, its capacity to adapt and obtain illegal profits, represents one of the most negative impacts on modern societies», stated the Minister for Home Affairs, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, at the presentation of this Strategy.

Organised Crime and Serious Offences

 

One of the new features of this National Strategy to Combat Organised Crime and Serious Offences 2019-2023 is that it incorporates the investigation and neutralisation of the economic and financial structures of criminal organisations among its lines of action. It also stresses the promotion of strategic and operational intelligence capabilities to foresee and pre-empt threats.

Other strategic lines of action include international cooperation and coordination, the drafting and adaptation of legislation, training and the use of new technologies to combat 21st Century crimes.

This Strategy was approved by the National Security Council and was drafted by the Ministry of Home Affairs through the Intelligence Centre to Combat Terrorism and Organised Crime (Spanish acronym: CITCO) under the umbrella of the State Secretariat for Security. Furthermore, contributions from other experts from the Ministries of Justice, of the Treasury, and of Economy and Business were taken into account when drafting the Strategy, as well as from the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of National Security.

The Strategy will remain in force for five years until 2023, and tasks CITCO with drafting monitoring and analysis reports to thus evaluate the effects of its application.
