LONDON, October 7. (ITAR-TASS). Fight against international organized crime will be the main task of the National Crime Agency, which officially started its work today in the UK. The new intelligence agency, as the government believes, will help “increasing the effectiveness of combating ethnic crime groups that operate in the UK”. Among the primary objectives of the structure are the Italian and Russian mafias.
Earlier these tasks had been partially fulfilled by Scotland Yard and special MI5 divisions.
The new agency’s staff will consist of four thousand people; among them would be experts in financial crime and cybercrime. Another important task will be to identify illegal migrants supply chains.
As expected, the agency also will cooperate closely with law enforcement agencies in more than a hundred countries, including ex-Soviet Union states. It is planned to open about 40 offices abroad “in order to identify international links of organized criminal groups”.
