LA PAZ, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Ibero-American countries on Thursday formed an alliance against cross-border organized crime with the help of an anti-crime work plan.
The alliance was formed between district attorneys from the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking Latin American countries as well as from Spain and Portugal at the 17th conference of the Ibero-American Association of Public Prosecutors' Offices (AIAMP).
The district attorneys in these countries have been committing efforts to coordination and cooperation in their fight against international felonies.
Bolivian Attorney-General Mario Uribe, a moderator at the AIAMP conference, said that the work plan will make investigation and prosecution of crimes in the Ibero-American countries easier.
The AIAMP commitment to a larger integration of crime-combating efforts will be facilitated by better communication among district attorney offices in these countries.
Apart from signing cooperative projects among Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and the Dominican Republic, the AIAMP conference also discussed such cross-border activities as human and drug trafficking, money laundering, and asset recovery.
