The Vietnam Ministry of Public Security delegation, led by Deputy Minister Lieutenant General, Le Quoc Hung, met with the UK regulatory authorities to strengthen bilateral cooperation in AML law enforcement.
A senior team from the Ministry of Public Security, led by Deputy Minister, Lieutenant General Le Quoc Hung, visited the UK to improve mutual law enforcement collaboration. The deputy minister met with the UK high-ranking officers and talked with the minister of state at the Home Office, Robert Jenrick. They also visited the UK crime enforcement department, National Crime Agency (NCA), and worked alongside the Metropolitan Police (Met). In discussion with Jenrick, both countries appreciated each country’s cooperation to prevent money laundering-related crimes and strengthen their law enforcement agencies to enhance safety and security in each country.
The administration of immigrants, as well as the prevention and control of crimes related to human trafficking, money laundering, and strengthened law enforcement cooperation between the two nations, were essential discussion topics of collaboration. Both countries agreed to collaborate with each other in an extensive and effective manner, assist them in building political trust, and deepen the security partnership between Vietnam and the UK.
After the discussions, they pledged to maintain and promote the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations at all levels of securities and coordinate investigations into cases related to human trafficking, illegal immigration, use of high technology, counterfeit property legalisation, financial crimes, and money laundering. The UK’s Home Office suggested that the two parties must research, develop, negotiate, and execute an agreement on sharing criminal records to improve the effectiveness of the sharing data and assist in analysis as well as verification in the near future.
The Minister of states promised that the British side would organise the training sessions for Vietnam’s security departments and create criminal-based databases to create a cooperative relationship between Met and Vietnam Public Security.
