Indonesian and Malaysian police strengthen cooperation to fight cross-border crime | Jobs Recent

JAKARTA, December 19 (Bernama): The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) and the Indonesian National Police (POLRI) will strengthen cooperation in the fight against international crime, including the rapid arrest of criminals who flee across the borders of the two countries.

This matter was discussed in the meeting of the International Relations Division of PDRM and POLRI held here, recently.

The head of POLRI’s international relations team, Krishna Murti, said Malaysia could deny entry to Indonesian criminals who have fled, or send them back to Indonesia.

“There is only one thing Indonesia will do, and the use of mutual legal assistance (MLA) or extradition will be the last option,” he said in a statement.

POLRI also plans to establish a Border Transnational Crime Liaison Office to increase cross-border surveillance.

According to Krishna, the presence of the office will encourage direct communication between the two parties so that problems can be solved quickly and efficiently without referring to the headquarters.

The meeting last Thursday, in addition to being an Asean agenda, resolved an effective dialogue and strengthened the construction of the police skills of the two countries.

The head of POLRI, Listyo Sigit Prabowo, is the Chairman of the ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Transnational Crime (AMMTC) and Krishna is the Chairman of the Meeting of Officials on Transnational Crime (SOMTC). – Bernama
