Senior government and police officials from the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) met in Bali June 5-10, 2006 to establish closer cooperation in the prevention of transnational crime.
The Indonesian Police, who hosted the Conference, are seeking the agreement of their colleagues in law enforcement from across the region to have corruption and illegal logging affirmed as acts of transnational crimes and subject to cross-border police cooperation.
The Indonesian proposal is supposedly tied to the frequent escape of high-level corruptors of the Indonesian economy to neighboring countries where they are safe from extradition.
The call for police cooperation was made on behalf of the Republic of Indonesia by Police Commissioner General Makbul Padmanegara, Head of Research and Crime Board at the National Police Headquarters who called on the delegates to increase cooperation to eradicate corruption and terrorism in the region.
