Center Approves India-Poland Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty in Criminal Matters

The Indo-Polish treaty on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters was approved on Wednesday by the Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It will enhance the capacity and effectiveness of both countries in the investigation and prosecution of crimes, including terrorism-related crimes through mutual legal assistance.

The treaty aims to enhance the effectiveness of both countries in criminal investigations and prosecutions, through cooperation and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.

In the context of transnational crime and its links to terrorism, the proposed treaty will provide a broad legal framework for bilateral cooperation with Poland in criminal investigation and prosecution as well as the tracing, control and confiscation of proceeds and instrumentalities of crime as well as funds intended to finance terrorist acts.

After the signing and ratification of the treaty, appropriate Gazette notices will be issued under the relevant provisions of Cr.PC 1973 to give effect to the provisions of the treaty in India.

The Gazette Notification is available to the general public outside the governmental realm and will allow for increased awareness and transparency on the mutual cooperation between India and Poland in the area of ​​mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.

This will increase India’s effectiveness in combating criminal activities involving Poland. Once in force, the Treaty will help provide better information and insight into the modus operandi of organized criminals and terrorists.

These in turn can be used to refine policy decisions in the area of ​​homeland security.
