The Promotion and Development of International Co-Operation to Combat Commercial and Economic Crime: LMM(80)2

It will be recalled that a considerable amount of attention was given to the question of economic and commercial crime by Law Ministers at their last Meeting in Winnipeg. Concern was expressed about the need to facilitate and develop international cooperation both in the investigation and prosecution of “white collar crime” within the Commonwealth. The importance that Ministers attached to this matter was reflected in the Communiqué which asked the Secretary-General to study and make recommendations for the facilitation of international cooperation and the provision of a greater degree of mutual assistance in this field.
