Monaco has taken part in the 85th general assembly of Interpol, which took place over four days in Bali.

Apart from mainly administrative matters, the 830 police chiefs and other top law enforcement officials present discussed the reinforcement of police capabilities and resources in the face of international terror, cyber-criminality and organised crime.

Applications for Interpol membership from Kosovo, Palestine and the Solomon Islands were put on hold, pending a report to be made to the next general assembly, due to be held next year in Beijing.

Richard Marangoni, Director of Public Safety, and Christophe Haget, Head of Criminal Investigation Division, will meet top French security officials in Paris early in the new year.

Monaco received plaudits for developing an interface between its own checks of traveller and visitor documents and the Interpol database, a scheme known as “I-Checkit.” This has worked well in swiftly identifying false documentation.
