Effort Against Organised Crime in the Focus of G-8 Paris Meeting

The interior and justice ministers of the G-8 countries have met in Paris adopting a series of documents, which outline specific guidelines of the member-countries' effort against organised crime.

The documents deal with a system of round-the-clock real-time operational data exchange, of prompt financial information provision and application of biometric-based identification of international travellers, reports Russia's interior ministry.

Besides, the ministers exchanged views on critical information protection, methods and procedures of tracking, freezing and seizing illegally obtained funds, said the ministerial press service.

Russian Interior Minister Boris Gryzlov gave a harsh assessment of modern-day terrorist challenges.

He described the hotbeds of terrorist activities as a threat to the civilisation, which prompts humanity to join hands to protect its security.

Mr Gryzlov came up with an initiative to create the atmosphere of civil intolerance towards terrorism whatever shape its takes and to debunk justifications of terrorist actions.

"Militants and ideologists of terror have learnt to misapply democratic freedoms and traditions, manipulate public opinion," emphasised the Russian minister.

Among other issues that dominated the Paris meeting were those related to application of biometric-based personal identification and the exchange of information on DNA, as well as to the fight against child pornography, according to the ministry.
