Belarus’ Investigative Committee interested in signing cooperation agreement with FBI

MINSK, 30 January (BelTA) – Belarus’ Investigative Committee is interested in signing a document on cooperation with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, head of Belarus’ Investigative Committee Ivan Noskevich said in an interview with BelTA.

The head of the Investigative Committee is in the USA on a working visit. He is scheduled to meet with the FBI top-ranking officials. “We are interested in signing a document on cooperation, and I sincerely hope that our meeting will be the first step towards this goal,” Ivan Noskevich said.

He noted that there are no written agreements between the agencies and the cooperation is based on other agreements. “In some cases the cooperation between the two countries in the investigation of criminal offences, and especially in the identification, freezing and tracing proceeds of crime, and also in the confiscation and recovery of assets, is possible on the basis of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (2000) and the United Nation Convention against Corruption (2003), since Belarus and the United States are among their signatories,” Ivan Noskevich said. Unfortunately, these conventions are not enough for successful bilateral cooperation in criminal investigations, he added.
