JAKARTA, June 28 (Bernama) -- Cambodia and Vietnam can now instantly conduct
real time searches of Interpol’s global database, thanks to the technical
solutions developed by Interpol.
This database currently contains over 30 million entries from more than 150
countries, including information on stolen and lost travel documents.
After only a few months, the Interpol''s IT-based information exchange system
is proving results.
Some listed criminals had been detected in the border area between Cambodia and
Vietnam and judicial procedures were now proceeding, the Asean Secretariat said
in a statement today.
The Interpol information exchange system is a joint project of European
Union (EU) and Asean, funded by the EU and implemented by Interpol.
Through the project, 16 pilot remote sites in Cambodia and Vietnam are now
connected to Interpol''s secure global communication system, comprising 12
control points and two regional police offices.
