Visit of representatives from the Parliament of Berlin

Bucharest, June 3rd 2016 – The Director for Operations of SELEC, Mr. Romulus Nicolae Ungureanu, welcomed today at the SELEC Headquarters a delegation of representatives of the Parliament of Berlin accompanied by representatives of Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

During the visit, Mr. Ungureanu explained the role of SELEC in preventing and combating trans-border organized crime in the Southeast European region, mentioned that is the only regional law enforcement organization that gathers Police and Customs authorities and detailed several activities developed by SELEC in the framework of Task Force Mirage on Countering Trafficking in Human Beings and Illegal Migration, with a focus on Operation Mirage.

This topic was of major interest for the delegates, as Federal Republic of Germany is one of the destination countries for migration, the Southeast Europe being a transit area for migrants on their way to Western Europe.

Federal Republic of Germany is holding the status of Observer to SELEC and is participating, to the extend of its status, in various meetings organized by SELEC.
