7th Regional Conference - 2011
Date: Wednesday 16 March 2011 - Saturday 19 March 2011
Jakarta, Indonesia, March 2011, 7th Regional Conference
“Asia Pacific Cooperation in Criminal Matters"
The International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) is holding its 7th IAP Asia Pacific and Middle East Regional Conference and High level Prosecutors Meeting in Jakarta on 16-19 March 2011.
The Attorney General of the Republic of Indonesia, Mr Basrief Arief would like to invite you to participate in the 7th IAP Asia Pacific and Middle East Regional Conference and High level Prosecutors Meeting. The conference will be held in the Capital City of Indonesia, Jakarta from 16th to 18th March 2011 and will be followed by the High Level Prosecutors Meeting on the 19th of March 2011.
The theme for the Asia Pacific and Middle East Regional Conference is ‘Asia Pacific and Middle East Cooperation in Criminal Matters’. We are becoming increasingly aware that international and organized crime is growing at an unprecedented rate. It often seems that law enforcement lags behind the criminals as they become ever more sophisticated. During this conference we will have opportunities not only to find a way to combat crimes and recover the proceeds of crime, especially transnational crime, but also how to prevent such crime spreading. Moreover we can share our knowledge, experiences and best practices to face such challenges.
In 2010, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic of Indonesia became the leading sector of a program called “Toward Asia Just” which was initiated by UNODC. This program is adopted from Eurojust. We hope that the conference will be an occasion to discuss how to improve coordination amongst us to fight against serious crime, and to sustain direct cooperation from prosecutor to prosecutor.
On the last day of the conference, there will be High Level Prosecutors meeting to strengthen the relationship between Attorneys General and Prosecutors General in the Asia Pacific region and to discuss a proposed international convention: ‘An Asia Pacific Convention for Cooperation in Criminal Justice’.
The event is particularly aimed at prosecutors and the High Level Prosecutors Meeting will be attended by The Attorney General, Prosecutors General, Chief Prosecutors or High Level Officials.
