LMM(93)69 Text of Suggested Statement on Mutual Assistance between Business Regulatory Agencies

As Revised by Senior Officials on 18 November, 1993

At the Meeting of Commonwealth Law Ministers held at Mauritius from 15-19 November 1993 note was taken of the considerable progress achieved towards the effective implementation of the Scheme relating to Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters within the Commonwealth. Ministers recognised, however, that the increasing international activity in the securities, futures and investment markets brought with it a corresponding need for an enhanced level of international co-operation in this specialised area. Given the traditional availability to Business Regulatory Agencies of administrative and civil sanctions in addition to those of the criminal law, this need could not be adequately satisfied by exclusive reliance on the Commonwealth Scheme or other established mechanisms for the provision of mutual assistance in traditional criminal matters.
