Organized Crime and the Prevention Thereof

Elena Xhina

Abstract


Organized crime has been and persists as one of the most concerning problems threatening the society and the state. The exigency to fight organized crime has urged the necessity of adopting a range of legislative measures both in national and international level, which, consequently have induced establishment of the new institutions of justice and have brought significant changes into the judicial nature of the existing ones. Discovery, identification, requisition and confiscation of property are product of crime and part of any strategies involved in the fighting against organized crime or other serious crimes. In the frame of the fight against corruption, the compliance of the Albanian legislation with international standards constitutes a crucial aspect since the engagement in international level promotes legal reform in the domain of penal legislation; aiming to deal a blow to corruption in all forms it is displayed. This writing will treat precisely the compliance of legislation as well as the role of the authorities of justice, which are the ones giving life to penal legislation and rendering it effective.
