KOTA KINABALU: Malaysian police are hoping that the country’s proposed Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Treaty involving Asean member countries will mean simpler procedures in tackling transnational crime. 

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Norian Mai said although Malaysian police had good co-operation with their Thai, Indonesian and Singaporean counterparts, there were still facing obstacles in their efforts. 

Among these obstacles is a difference in the laws of the various countries, he said after attending the opening of the meeting of Attorneys General on a Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Treaty here. 

“This is another thing that we hope would be settled,'' said Norian, adding that four senior officers were attending the three-day meeting to provide input from the Malaysian police. He said the proposed treaty would make it easier for law enforcement agencies of signatory countries to contact each other in dealing with criminals operating across their borders.
