The phenomenon of Transnational Organised Crime has been assuming disturbing proportions, all over the world. Increasing trend of Globalization, Urbanization and Industrialization has been helping organized crime offenders to develop transnational linkages. They take advantage of the differences between legal systems of various nations, incapacity of sovereign nations to work in close co-operation with one another and have been posing multi-faceted threats to the Criminal Justice Functionaries.
