The PM said that the principles of UN Convention on International Cooperation (UNOCAC) and International Organized Crime Against Corruption (UNOTC), especially international cooperation should be implemented fully and effectively.
Prime Minister Modi said, "The decision to set a standard definition of fugitive economic criminals should be assigned to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). FATF should decide standard procedures for dealing with fugitive economic criminals, their extradition, extradition and prosecution, which all agree on. This will help in dealing with such cases in G-20 countries.
India has also advocated creating a common platform for sharing successful experiences of extradition, the current system of extradition, and legal support, etc. Also, it has been said that the G-20 forum should start working on considering the properties of fugitive economic criminals.
It was stated in this agenda that "to freeze the revenue arising from crime by effectively mutual cooperation in the law process, to bring back the culprits at the earliest and to arrange the method of transferring the income from the crime back to that country”
Simultaneously, India has called upon the G20 countries to create such a mechanism so that financial fugitives can be prevented from coming here and providing a safe haven.
Further, it was decided -"Head of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), United Nations Convention Against Organized Organized Crime (UNOTC), especially the 'international cooperation', should be implemented effectively."
