Transnational organized crime is a global concern. Generating around US$ 870 billion a year, organized criminal networks profit from the sale of illegal goods wherever there is a demand and represent a threat to peace, human security and prosperity.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime launched an awareness campaign on Monday highlighting the cost and scope of transnational organized crime.
Organized crime networks turn over an estimated $870 billion a year, according to the office, more than six times the amount of official development aid, or about 1.5% of global gross domestic product.
This video-spot is part of a UNODC-led campaign highlighting the various aspects of transnational organized crime.
The PSA ends with a tagline, “Transnational organized crime: Let’s put them out of business.”
