Tehran, IRNA – Iran’s Prosecutor General Mohammad Kazem Movahhedi Azad has said that creating security and legal and judicial protections for investors and entrepreneurs is one of the duties of prosecutors.

Addressing the 5th Meeting of Attorneys/Prosecutors General of the ECO Member States in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, Movahedi Azad said that technical, legal, and judicial cooperation between ECO members can pave the way for developing political, commercial, and economic cooperation of the members.

Comprehensive and coherent strategies between countries can prevent the growth of organized crimes and, in the long run, alleviate them, he noted.

He added that the mechanism of legal and judicial cooperation between ECO member states requires two preconditions: first, the development of a comprehensive legal framework, including the approval of criminal and procedural regulations in the field of judicial assistance and the extradition of criminals and the transfer of convicts, which fortunately has been approved by some members; second, establishment of an efficient law enforcement institution to have coordinating systems in the implementation of approved agreements, as well as to explain methods for the development of judicial cooperation is necessary.
