NNA - Justice Minister, Salim Jreissati, on Monday met at his ministerial office with a delegation of the US Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), headed by the Director of the Office of International Law Enforcement and Drug Control at the US Embassy in Beirut.
Discussions reportedly touched on negotiations over the signature of an agreement to combat some of the trans-border crimes, in accordance with international agreements signed by Lebanon, in addition to a judicial cooperation understanding between Lebanon and the United States of America.
Minister Jreissati gave a definition of some terminologies, in order to avoid any misunderstanding in the devising of such agreements, to be submitted to the Council of Ministers for approval.
Both sides also exchanged information on some of the crimes that are taking place, notably with respect to issues related to smuggling of antiquities and art works, corruption, illegal transfer of funds and smuggling, in general.
Talks also touched with the subject of the International Tribunal for Lebanon.
