Summary

On 27 March the Mission to Montenegro, in co-operation with the Ministry of Interior, organized a regional workshop to discuss the crime threat posed by the emergence of motorcycle gangs in South-Eastern Europe. Participants, comprised of twenty eight officers of the police services of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Montenegro, identified areas to improve co-operation, shared information and strengthened contacts. Besides the six delegations and representatives of the Montenegrin Intelligence and Organized Crime units, international experts from EUROPOL and the Swedish and Danish police gave lectures on European and Nordic procedures, trends and tools in combating organized crime by motorcycle gangs.
