EUBAM Fosters Cooperation between INTERPOL and the Libyan National Counter-Terrorism Team
April 11, 2022
Supported and organized by the European Union Border Assistance Mission to Libya, key members of the Libyan National Counter-Terrorism team visited Lyon on a study trip. The Libyan Counter-Terrorism (CT) Coordinator and EUBAM Law Enforcement Team were introduced to the key INTERPOL Directorates of Global Outreach and Regional Support, Counter-Terrorism, Organized and Emerging Crime, and Operational Support and Analysis.
During the visit, the Libyan delegation were briefed on projects, operations, and training concepts in different fields of crime, as well as the fundamental functions and databases of INTERPOL. This paves the way for further planning to improve the capacity of Libyan law enforcement agencies, connecting Libyan and global efforts in countering terrorism and combatting organized crime through INTERPOL cooperation.
Several INTERPOL units are currently planning projects and activities regarding Libya. As part of the visit, EUBAM Libya Law Enforcement Team had opportunities to present and promote its role in coordinating and supporting planned INTERPOL activities for Libyan law enforcement.
