The agreement will deepen collaboration between Bolivia's ID services and Interpol, facilitating data access.
Bolivia’s General Service of Personal Identification (Segip) signed Thursday an agreement with the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) to facilitate the prevention of international crimes.
"SEGIP and Interpol agree on access to data to provide security."
The agreement establishes "the application of mechanisms for consultation and verification of citizens' data … generating reliability and security in the information through access to the database of the pioneer institution of electronic government in Bolivia."
Segip will be able to access Interpol’s FIND database to obtain information on wanted criminals and the names of human trafficking victims. Now the Segip, the government entity in charge of granting identity documents in Bolivia, will be able to collaborate directly with Interpol in its fight against transnational crimes such as terrorism, drug trafficking, money laundering, arms trafficking, and human trafficking, among others.
Interpol’s Garnica said the agreement represents a great step for Bolivia’s fight against organized crime and forged documents.
Headquartered in the French city of Lyon, Interpol gathers 192 member countries.
