Counteracting Organised Crime in Africa


Intelligence Transfer Centre will be hosting the first Annual Managing Organised Crime Conference at Gallagher Estate in Midrand on 13 and 14 August.

Crime syndicates are said to have political and business ties, which make it much easier for criminals to cross borders undetected. Although South Africa has one of the best laws protecting precious commodities such as rhinos and other protected species, these commodities always find their way across South African borders despite the law enforcement’s best efforts. Our coasts are well known “pit stops” for organised crime syndicates, using out ports to smuggle rhino horns, drugs, pirated goods and to commit acts of human trafficking.

This conference aims to not only discuss pertinent issues around transnational organised crime, but to also find solutions and strategies that combat crime.

ITC has once again put together a phenomenal panel of speaker including: De Wet Ferreira, Deloitte; Jason Jordaan, Special investigating Unit; Lieutenant General Lebeya, South African Police Service; Mark Botha, Regional Magistrate; Hugo van Zyl Chief, Operating Officer South African Crime Insurance Bureau; Doraval Govender, UNISA; Johan J du Toit, Deputy Director, National Prosecuting Authority to name a few.

Key strategies to be discussed include: Understanding how organised crime thrives under corruption; Arriving at a confiscation order in terms of Section 18 of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act 121 of 1998; The managing of the investigation phase of cases dealing with organised crime, including serious human right abuses; The role of organised crime in cyber crime; Fraud syndicate operations in infrastructure and development and industry strategies to combat organised crime in South Africa.
