International environmental law
Environmental law enforcement agencies deal with international cases related to the environment. These laws are there to make sure that foreign government, as well as global industries, comply with responsibilities stated in foreign treaties. Environmental issues can be linked to violations of international environmental laws. The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), also known as ICPO, investigates and prosecutes these types of crimes. There are also other organizations such as the UN Interregional Crimes and Justice Research Institute, the UN Environmental Programme, EU, and G8 which also work on the investigation of crimes including smuggling of ozone depleting substances, illegal fishing, illegal wildlife trade, and illegal dumping of hazardous waste. A well-versed attorney from a criminal defense law firm understands international laws and can negotiate on your behalf.
