This volume contains the basic international documents relating to the conditions under which one country will provide information, evidence and other forms of assistance to another in the investigation and prosecution of criminal offences and in countering malpractice in the world's securities and futures markets. Major multilateral initiatives have been pioneered by the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the Organisation of American States, the Commonwealth and others. Supported by a growing number of sub-regional and bilateral agreements, the obligations imposed have had a major impact on domestic legislation and are of increasing importance to prosecutors and national regulatory authorities. The work contains a substantive Introduction which places the documents in context and provides a detailed overview of the subject.
