Iran Majlis approves Palermo bill


Tehran, June 10, 2018(IRNA) – Iranian lawmakers approved on Sunday the Palermo bill on joining the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC).

The parliamentarians earlier amended the bill after the Guardian Council found incompatibility between the text of the bill and its translation. 

Iran's Majlis (Parliament) did approve the Palermo bill with 136 votes in favor and 89 against. Eleven lawmakers abstained.

According to UNODC, the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, adopted by General Assembly resolution 55/25 of 15 November 2000, is the main international instrument in the fight against transnational organized crime. It opened for signature by Member States at a High-level Political Conference convened for that purpose in Palermo, Italy, on 12-15 December 2000 and entered into force on 29 September 2003.
