Welcome to the Official Website of the Office of the Special Envoy on Transnational Crime (OSETC)

 

 

The website is designed to inform the public on the prevention or mitigation of the threats of transnational crimes and to provide real-time information to the policy makers to have informed decision.

 

The Office of the Special Envoy on Transnational Crime (OSETC) is created under the Executive Order No. 265 s. 2004 (Defining the Approach and Institutional Mechanism for the Government’s Comprehensive Program on Combating Transnational Organized Crime).

 

The constant need to change and adapt is necessary; hence, this website is doing its best to keep abreast with the current trends and modus operandi used by transnational organized crime groups for the public to know and for the policy makers to contain and manage the threats posed by this borderless crime.

 

Through this website, the campaign in combating transnational crime is synchronized, synergized, enhanced, and empowered through the collective and collaborative efforts by government and the public. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EO 265: Creating the OSETC for a Stronger Campaign Against Transnational Organized Crime

 

  

On January 23, 2004, President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo issued Executive Order No.265 (Defining the Approach and Institutional Mechanism for the Government’s Comprehensive Program on Combating Transnational Organized Crime as another major step in the country’s continuing campaign against borderless crime.

 

EO 265 established the Office of the Special Envoy on Transnational Crime (OSETC) as “an oversight body to provide the critical link between and among local, national, regional and international agencies and organizations in forging agreements, concretizing cooperation and harmonizing action.”

 

Heading the OSETC is retired Police Chief Superintendent Anselmo Simeon P Pinili, who was designated by the President as Special Envoy on Transnational Crime (SETC) with the rank of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary.

 

As embodied in EO 265, the SETC is mandated to set policy directions and program design standards and advise the President on all matters regarding transnational crime. Likewise, he shall represent the Philippine government in regional and international fora on transnational crime and serve as a focal point for coordinating, integrating and evaluating the efforts of law enforcement and other government agencies involved in the campaign against transnational crime.

 

Comprehensive Programme to Combat Transnational Organized Crime. As the focal point on all matters involving the campaign against transnational crime, the OSETC is now spearheading the formulation of a Comprehensive Programme to Combat Transnational Organized Crime (CPCTOC) which will serve as an instrument to guide relevant national and local bodies, especially the government, in helping ensure the synergy and efficacy of approaches and initiatives in combating transnational crime in the country.
