Program Overview

Over the past twenty years, China’s political system has undergone serious and fundamental changes. China’s efforts to establish a legal framework consistent with rule of law principles have prompted a vigorous debate within China’s judicial, scholarly, and policy communities about possible future reforms. The U.S. has an interest in encouraging the development of China’s justice system in line with international norms and rule of law principles. This interest stems not only from China’s vast economic and political influence in East Asia and the Pacific, South and Central Asia and beyond, but also from the massive flow of precursor chemicals that are diverted for illicit use from within its borders, a desire to increase law enforcement cooperation as part of U.S.-China Joint Liaison Dialogue on Law Enforcement Cooperation (JLG), and ongoing concerns about human rights that draw the regular attention of the U.S. Government and the international community. The program focuses on increasing U.S. understanding of the Chinese legal system, and vice versa, and influencing China toward greater law enforcement cooperation with the United States.

Program Goals and Objectives

The China program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Law Enforcement and Counterterrorism and Support for U.S. Policies and Values and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goal of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To promote criminal justice sector reform.

Objective 2: To increase awareness of U.S. policies, practices, and legal frameworks to enhance understanding and facilitate increased law enforcement cooperation.

Program Overview

Throughout the East Asia and the Pacific (EAP) region, porous borders, long cultural traditions of smuggling, expansive and largely unpatrolled maritime routes, abundant valuable natural resources, and under-funded law enforcement institutions create conditions under which domestic, regional and international criminals flourish. It is also a situation conducive to the free movement of terrorists. In order to effectively counter cross-border crime, police and other security forces in the region must work together to effectively share information and support each other’s operational efforts. There is a clear need to strengthen cooperation among law enforcement officials in the region to accomplish several goals: to build regional and sub-regional law enforcement capacity to interdict illegally trafficked goods, substances, and people; to effectively investigate cases; to counter terrorism; and to dismantle organized crime syndicates. The EAP Regional program will provide training opportunities to law enforcement officers in multiple countries with an emphasis on cross-border liaison.

Program Goals and Objectives

The EAP Regional program supports INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goal of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To develop effective, modern, and professional law enforcement institutions that are in line with international standards and facilitate cooperation among law enforcement agencies in the EAP region in order to help combat transnational crime.

Objective 2: To combat corruption within and among law enforcement agencies.

FY 2013 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Regional Skills Development

  • Funds will continue to build the capabilities of law enforcement officials in the EAP region. This program aims to support law enforcement capacity-building activities and promote regional cooperation. U.S. assistance will focus on strengthening cooperation between police in the region to address cross-border crimes and to enhance the security and stability. Assistance may include, but is not limited to, training and technical assistance, limited equipment donations, infrastructure support, study tours, seminars, and support for multilateral training missions and exercises. Assistance projects will complement ongoing bilateral efforts in the EAP region, and may incorporate bilateral assistance programs into regionally funded activities.

Program Overview

Indonesia is a strategic partner for the United States with growing regional and global influence. Indonesia is also home to the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), and the recently U.S. and UN designated Jemmah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT), and has been the target of several deadly terrorist attacks over the past decade. Since the start of INL assistance in 2000, the Government of Indonesia (GOI) has embraced the institutional reform of its law enforcement organizations and criminal justice system. The continued development of an effective civilian police force and support for prosecutorial and judicial reform will ensure Indonesia remains a key partner for the United States in combating transnational crime and terrorism.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Indonesia program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Improving Governance, Supporting Climate Action and Environmental Sustainability, and Facilitating Reform of Security Forces/Counterterrorism Efforts and Addressing Transnational Organized Crime, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems and Counternarcotics.

Objective 1: To build a sustainable whole of government approach, including civilian law enforcement and other relevant government agencies, to develop effective, modern, democratic, and professional law enforcement institutions with the capacity to combat maritime threats, conduct investigations, respond to manmade and natural disasters, develop policies in line with international standards, and enhance training curricula and protect human rights.

Objective 2: To assist prosecutors to cooperate with law enforcement to prosecute cases of terrorism, transnational crime, corruption and environmental crime.

Objective 3: To disrupt the movement of illicit drugs through Indonesia and reduce demand.

FY 2013 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Law Enforcement Support

  • The Law Enforcement Development Program components will support the development of the law enforcement capacity of the GOI, including assistance to the Indonesian National Police (INP), including the continued development of maritime security capacity and integration, capacity-building for port and border security, increased investigative capacity for complex transnational crimes (including environmental crimes), management systems implementation, the reform and standardization of the INP entry-level curriculum, and forensics capacity-building, through organizational development, technical assistance, training and equipment provision.

Counternarcotics

  • The Counternarcotics Assistance Program will provide training, equipment and technical assistance that will strengthen the capacity of Indonesia counternarcotics officials and increase responsiveness of the criminal justice system to drug-related offenses.

Rule of Law and Human Rights

Criminal Justice Sector Reform

  • Legal Advisors will assist the GOI to improve the capacity of the criminal justice system and institutions. Assistance will include support for organizational and legislative reforms to move the Indonesian criminal justice system to a more adversarial, transparent and evidence-based system. The advisors will also support efforts by the Government of Indonesia to prosecute key transnational crimes, including terrorism, corruption, money laundering, terrorist financing, narcotics, trafficking, and environmental crimes. They will also develop an interagency program to enhance court security.

Program Overview

The INL program in Laos is in the midst of a strategic shift, from being primarily focused on counternarcotics to incorporating capacity-building work with Lao law enforcement and justice system organizations. The longstanding alternative development/crop control project in Laos is coming to a conclusion. However, the number of drug addicts in Laos remains high, and abuse of amphetamine-type substances (ATS) has proliferated throughout Laos in recent years. Funds will be programmed to address the demand side of the drug equation through public awareness campaigns and drug addiction treatment projects. Assistance will also bolster the ability of Lao law enforcement and prosecutors to address transnational criminal threats and to better extend rule of law throughout the country, through training, technical assistance, and potentially provision of basic equipment.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Laos program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Strengthening the Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Counternarcotics and Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: Assist justice sector institutions (including law enforcement and prosecutors) to investigate and prosecute drug traffickers, improve contraband interdiction, combat money laundering, and improve the criminal justice system.

Objective 2: Assist the Government of Laos (GOL) to give addicts effective treatment, rehabilitation, occupational therapy and after-care services to reduce the demand for drugs in Laos.

FY 2013 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

  • Law Enforcement Support will expand Lao provincial and district police’s knowledge of current trafficking methods, capabilities, investigation techniques, and the use of simple technology to make them more effective and reliable partners for U.S. law enforcement in combating transnational criminal threats, including, but not limited to, narcotics trafficking. The project will also work with the Lao Customs Department to improve the interdiction of opium parcels shipments to the United States, as well as of contraband generally.

Counternarcotics

Drug Awareness/Demand Reduction

  •  Demand Reduction/Drug Awareness Project will assist the GOL to develop drug-treatment facilities that meet modern standards and to increase the prevalence of community-based treatment programs. Funds will also support government media campaigns to increase drug awareness and deter youth from abusing drugs.

Transnational Crime

  • Financial Crimes and Money Laundering: Funds will provide training to prosecutors, investigators and other public officials to identify and deter illicit use of the international financial system, among other activities.

Rule of Law and Human Rights

Criminal Justice Sector Reform

  • Training will be provided to justice-sector institutions, possibly including the Office of the Supreme Prosecutors (OOSP) and the Lao Bar Association, to help judges, prosecutors, and defense lawyers improve the skills needed to conduct effective criminal prosecutions and coordinate with police investigators.  The Ministry of Justice will also be assisted in its efforts to bring better understanding of Lao law to provincial and district officials.

Program Overview

The relationship between the United States and Malaysia has deepened, with a particular focus on security, trade, and smart-power initiatives. Malaysia has begun a process of modernizing its security legislation reform which could lead to an increased focus on investigations and prosecutions of terrorism cases. Through a legal advisor posted at U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur funded with the Non-Proliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining, and Related Programs appropriation, the United States has been providing targeted assistance to the Attorney General’s Chambers on counterterrorism, counter-proliferation, and related matters. The FY 2013 request would support the legal advisor and allow broader assistance to the criminal justice sector, beyond the counterterrorism and counter-proliferation efforts of the current project.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Malaysia program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Increase Malaysian Support for U.S. Global and Regional Security Objectives and Effective Counterterrorism and Law Enforcement Cooperation, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goal of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To build capacity of the criminal justice system and to assist in the reform of the system to improve prosecutions of transnational and complex crimes. 

FY 2013 Program

Rule of Law and Human Rights

  • A Legal Advisor will assist the Government of Malaysia (GOM) in its effort to transform its criminal justice system to deal more effectively with all forms of transnational crime. The advisor will continue to work with the GOM on counterterrorism and counter-proliferation issues, but will also expand the cooperation to include organizational development on prosecutor training and police-prosecutor cooperation, as well as issue-specific assistance on topics such as trafficking in persons and immigration.

Program Overview

The United States and the Philippines are long-standing partners promoting cooperation on peace and security issues. The Government of the Philippines (GOP) has achieved significant successes in capturing members of terrorist groups Jemaah Islamiyah and the Abu Sayyaf Group, and efforts underway continue to improve the capacity of civilian law enforcement agencies to address such threats, as responsibility for internal peace and security is shifted back to the Philippine National Police (PNP) from the Armed Forces of the Philippines under the 2011-2016 Internal Peace and Security Plan. INL programs remain dedicated to improving the capacity of the Philippine police and strengthening the criminal justice system to prevent, investigate, and successfully prosecute domestic and transnational crimes. 

Program Goals and Objectives

The Philippines program supports the host government’s Integrated Transformation Plan. The Philippines program also supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Defeating Terrorists and Fostering Peace and Advancing Democratic Values, Transforming Governance and Protecting Human Rights, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goal Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To assist with building the capacity of law enforcement institutions to combat crime and conduct criminal investigations that will result in arrests and prosecutions of criminals.

Objective 2: To increase the professionalism of the Philippine police and prosecutors to improve case management and enhance the respect for human rights in the criminal justice system.

Objective 3: To improve prosecutorial training and skills development, develop better use of criminal procedure tools, and provide recommendations for improving the operations of the criminal justice system. 

FY 2013 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Law Enforcement Support

  • Funds will support the Philippines National Police and other law enforcement entities by providing technical assistance, training, equipment, supplies, and other support to raise the capacity of law enforcement to combat transnational and other crimes that threaten the Philippines and regional security.

Rule of Law and Human Rights

Justice Sector Reform

  • Funds will support legislative and institutional reform efforts aimed at strengthening the Philippine criminal justice system and build its capacity to prevent, investigate, and prosecute corruption, money laundering and financial crimes, and various other crimes. Funds will also support the material and training needs of Philippine prosecutors and law enforcement entities working to deter transnational crimes so that Philippine authorities can work more effectively with their neighbors.

Program Overview

Thailand is a U.S. treaty ally and key partner on law enforcement issues.

Thailand’s criminal laws, justice institutions, and regulatory and investigative capabilities should be improved in order to respond more effectively to terrorism, transnational and organized crime in the 21st century. Thailand and the United States maintain an exemplary, long-standing partnership in counternarcotics work, and Thailand is well-placed and willing to put forward a similar effort against international crime. Continued assistance from the U.S. Government will be focused on bolstering anti-corruption reforms and governance, and capacity building in the criminal justice system; a vital component in Thailand’s internal stability as well as in the operational interface between Thai and U.S. law enforcement.

Program Goals and Objectives

Thailand’s program reflects an integrated strategy, based on an interagency approach, to ensure that Thailand will remain strong, stable, and well-situated to provide vital cooperation on a range of issues of concern. The Thailand program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priority of Thailand has an effective and trustworthy criminal justice system, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems and Transnational Crime.

Objective 1: Improve Thailand’s law enforcement capabilities and support judicial and legislative reforms to strengthen effectiveness, comply with international standards, bolster internal and cross-border cooperation in the security sector, and support the rule of law while respecting human rights.

Objective 2: Minimize the adverse effects that transnational crime and criminal networks have on the United States and its allies through enhanced international cooperation and foreign assistance.

Objective 3: Increase our diplomatic efforts and our foreign assistance to advocate for strong and healthy democratic institutions in order to bolster security and counter crime and corruption.

FY 2013 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Program Overview

Timor-Leste is Asia’s poorest and most fragile democracy. Since achieving independence in 2002, Timor-Leste has suffered from a pattern of political violence and instability. Given the geographic location of Timor-Leste, situated between United States treaty ally Australia and strategic partner Indonesia, the U.S. commitment to security and stability of this fragile nation is imperative. The United States’ highest priority in Timor-Leste is to enhance the ability of the Timorese government to extend the current period of stability and security for its citizens, which will set the foundation for sustained, long-term economic and social development.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Timor-Leste program supports the Embassy’s FY 2013 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priority of Foundations for Good Governance Strengthened, and INL’s FY 2013 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To assist the Timorese justice system in developing capacity to manage simple and complex criminal cases.
