KSPO participated in th G7 24/7 High-Tech Crime Network Induction ceremony of the Mongolian National Police

The Korea Supreme Prosecutor's Office(KSPO) participated in the G7 24/7 High-Tech Crime Network Induction ceremony held at the Criminal Department of the Mongolian National Police on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, 14:00 to 15:30.

Hosted by the U.S. Embassy in Mongolia and the U.S. Department of Justice, the ceremony was also honored to include KSPO, which was instrumental in Mongolia joining the network.

KSPO participated in the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) enforcement workshop in Mongolia in September 2023, where it introduced the G7 24/7 Network to Mongolian prosecutors and investigators, presented best practices, and emphasized the need to join the network. In November 2023, KSPO invited five Mongolian officials to Seoul for the 2nd APC-HUB training session, where KSPO along with officials from the U.S. Department of Justice, recommended Mongolia to join the Network.

This event was a good example of how the U.S. Department of Justice's initiative and KSPO's small cooperation can help a country become a member of the international cooperation system. We hope Mongolia joins the Budapest Convention in the near future, which will allow us to cooperate more extensively.

Using the APC-HUB as a springboard, KSPO will make further efforts to combat cybercrime and eliminate cybercriminals' havens in the Asia-Pacific region.
