Morocco Reiterates Commitment to Full Implementation to UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime

Vienna- The permanent ambassador of Morocco in Vienna, Ambassador Azzeddine Farhane, reaffirmed Monday the commitment of the Moroccan government to the full implementation of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its supplemental protocols as a global framework in this area.

Speaking during the 32nd session of the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ), Farhane stated, “These instruments represent a comprehensive legal framework and a valid international reference to collectively fight problems related to transnational organized crime.”

He stated this at a meeting with the theme “Improving the functioning of the criminal justice system to ensure access to justice and establish a safe and secure society.” In this regard, Morocco, which has created a multidimensional and comprehensive strategy to prevent crime and ensure criminal justice, has placed the fight against terrorism among its top priorities.

Farhane also described the Kingdom’s “holistic and integrated” anti-terrorism plan, which is built on a three-pronged strategy of improving internal security, combating poverty, and reforming the religious domain.

Regarding Morocco’s involvement in international efforts to combat terrorism, the diplomat highlighted that the Kingdom has co-chaired the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) since 2016.

In addition, Morocco hosts the first United Nations Office for Counter-Terrorism and Training in Africa in Rabat as part of its relationship with the UN. Farhane went on.

Regarding migration, the ambassador highlighted that the Kingdom created its “National Strategy for Immigration and Asylum” in 2013 as part of its management of migrant flows.
