To support Palestine in the fight against organised crime, the European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission (EUPOL COPPS) advisers delivered a workshop on 17 February 2020 for 20 officials from the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Interior’s National Programme on Drug Crime and Justice, senior police officers from the Anti Narcotics Department and scholars from Birzeit University.
The advisers from Finland, Italy and Romania underlined the importance of having a robust legislative framework as well as a national strategy bringing together different agencies to successfully combat organised crime.
EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
