|Entry Into Force Date:||2003-09-29|
|Description:||On November 15, 2000, the UN General Assembly adopted the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and supplementary protocols in order to promote cooperation in more effectively preventing and combating transnational organized crime. The Convention deals with the fight against organized crime in general and some of the major activities in which transnational organized crime is commonly involved, such as money laundering, corruption and the obstruction of investigations or prosecutions. To supplement the Convention, two Protocols also tackle specific areas of transnational organized crime that are of particular concern to UN Member States.
