Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Bill introduced
Organised Crime and Anti-corruption Bill
The Organised Crime and Anti-corruption
Legislation Bill will bring New Zealand into line with
international conventions and responds to recommendations

against organised crime.
The Bill seeks to improve New
Zealand's ability to collaborate with international law
enforcement agencies to disrupt organised crime and to
respond quickly and effectively to new criminal activities
as they emerge.
