Terrorists Exploiting Disruption Caused by COVID-19 - Security Council Briefing

  • 0

Virtual Briefing by Vladimir Voronkov, Under-Secretary-General of the Office of Counter-Terrorism, on 'Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts': Linkage of Counterterrorism and transnational organized crime, during the Security Council Open VTC. He said, “we are yet to fully understand the impact and consequences of the pandemic on global peace and security, and more specifically on organized crime and terrorism.” Voronkov continued, “we know that terrorists are exploiting the significant disruption and economic hardships caused by COVID-19 to spread fear, hate and division and radicalize and recruit new followers, adding that “the increase in internet usage and cybercrime during the pandemic further compounds the problem.” The Under-Secretary-General also noted that Member States are rightly focused on tackling the health emergency and human crisis caused by COVID-19. But we must not forget or be complacent about the continuing threat of terrorism. Voronkov explained, “in many parts of the world, terrorists are exploiting local grievances and poor governance to regroup and assert their control. The pandemic has the potential to act as a catalyst in the spread of terrorism and violent extremism by exacerbating inequalities, undermining social cohesion and fueling local conflicts.” He reiterated that the world “must continue our fight against terrorist groups and criminal networks to deny them the opportunity to exploit the COVID-19 crisis. Collective action and international cooperation are needed now more than ever.” The report was prepared by UNODC and OCT in response to the request contained in Security Council resolution 2482. It reflects the contributions of 50 Member States and 15 Global Compact entities, and benefitted from valuable UN system inputs, including from the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate and the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team. The report provides an overview of measures taken by Member States and UN entities to address linkages between terrorism and organized crime, as well as recommendations for action going forward.

Linkages between Terrorism and Organized Crime - Security Council Briefing (6 August 2020)

  • 0

Virtual Briefing by Ghada Fathi Waly, Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, on 'Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts': Linkage of Counterterrorism and transnational organized crime, during the Security Council Open VTC. The Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Ghada Waly said, “as the Security Council has recognized, linkages between terrorism and organized crime are complex and multifaceted, posing a serious threat to international peace and security.” Addressing the Security Concil via video link today (06 Aug), the UNODC’s chief presented the findings of the report of the Secretary-General on actions taken by Member States and UN Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact Entities to address linkages between terrorism and organized crime. She said, “the COVID-19 crisis poses a host of new challenges to national authorities,” adding that “organized criminal groups and terrorists may seek to capitalize on and exploit new vulnerabilities, and transit patterns are shifting in view of travel restrictions and lockdown measures, adding further challenges for border security.” Waly reiterated that “comprehensive and cooperative responses are needed more than ever.” She explained that the report identified several areas for intensified action to fully respond to Resolution 2482 and to further develop and disseminate the good practices reported by Member States. Waly said, “national legal frameworks could be updated to include precise definitions of terrorism and organized crime offences and criminalization of facilitation acts,” adding that “more resources could be directed towards reinforcing national intelligence and criminal justice coordination and capacity through the establishment of specialized units and inter-agency mechanisms, as well as through a greater focus on intelligence-led policing, and evidence collection and preservation, including for electronic evidence.” She also stated that targeting entire organized criminal or terrorist networks when building criminal cases should also be a priority.

Linkage of Counterterrorism and transnational organized crime - Security Council (6 August 2020)

  • 0

Security Council meeting to address linkages between terrorism & organized crime. Challenges, lessons learned, good practices & need to support UN entities fighting these threats. Linkages between terrorism and organized crime are a growing threat facing the international community. There are increasing concerns that terrorists can benefit from organized crime, whether domestic or transnational, through, among other activities, trafficking in arms, persons, drugs, artifacts and cultural property; illicit trade in natural resources and wildlife; the abuse of legitimate commercial enterprises, non-profit organizations, donations and crowdfunding; and proceeds from criminal activity, including, but not limited to, kidnapping for ransom, extortion and bank robbery, as well as transnational organized crime at sea. While the degree of the threat varies by region, the transnational nature and complex interlinkages between terrorism and organized crime underpin the importance of international cooperation and coordinated responses at multiple levels. Furthermore, as national authorities have diverted attention and resources towards addressing the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, new challenges have emerged. These include limitations of the law enforcement apparatus to conduct operations, as well as implications for border security, as transit patterns shift towards irregular routes owing to air travel restrictions. The open debate will provide an opportunity for Member States and observer States to discuss continued challenges, especially in the light of the shifting dynamics as a result of COVID-19; highlight lessons learned and good practices for addressing the linkages between terrorism and organized crime; and identify areas for further joint action, including through the support of the United Nations system entities working on these issues.  The meeting will be chaired by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, Retno L.P. Marsudi. The Security Council will hear briefings by the Under-Secretary-General of the Office of Counter-Terrorism, Vladimir Voronkov, and the Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Ghada Fathi Waly.
