Last week, at Palermo, Italy, the UN Convention on Transnational Organized
Crime and the Trafficking and Smuggling Protocols were open to signature.
The countries that signed the Convention and Protocols are listed on the UN
A number of countries with significant trafficking problems did not sign,
e.g., Australia, China, Czech Republic, Israel, Japan, Morocco, Poland,
Slovakia and Slovenia, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Thailand, Ukraine, Vietnam.
It is also interesting to note that all countries that signed the
Trafficking Protocol signed the Smuggling Protocol, except for Colombia and
Paraguay, which did not sign the Smuggling Protocol.
Also, every country, without exception, signed the main Convention.
