Jokowi set to open Interpol conference in Bali next month

BINTANGNEWS.com – President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo is scheduled to open the 85th Interpol General Assembly, which will be held in Nusa Dua, Bali, on Nov.7 to 10.   
National Police chief Gen.Tito Karnavian and Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti will be present as main speakers in the conference.
Tito is set to share Indonesia’s experience in combating terrorism, while Susi will convey the country’s success stories in tackling illegal fishing and its destructive environmental impacts.
“The two speakers will be present because Indonesia is considered to have made great achievements in handling the two problems. Hopefully other countries can take a lesson from the country’s successes,” NCB Interpol secretary Brig.Gen.Naufal Yahya said as quoted by Antara on Wednesday.
Around 1,200 delegations from 154 Interpol member countries, 10 Interpol sub-bureaus, observers from several international organizations, exhibitors and journalists from Indonesia and abroad are expected to attend the event. Three main topics, namely terrorism, organized crime and cybercrime, will be discussed in the meeting.
Naufal said the role of the National Police in combating terrorism in Indonesia was a good example of terrorism eradication.
“It has shown that Indonesia’s capacity in tackling terrorism has become an international standard applied in countries across the world.”
Naufal said Interpol was very important for the National Police in uncovering terrorism cases and organized crime, such as human trafficking, money laundering and corruption, particularly because of its complete and accurate database.
“Perpetrators can move very quickly. Without support from Interpol, it will likely be difficult for us to catch them,” he said.***
