28 Sep 2016

The XXIV Ordinary General Assembly of the Ibero-American Association of Public Prosecutors (AIAMP) shall be held in Lisbon on 10-11 October 2016.

AIAMP was founded in Brazil in 1954 as the Interamerican Association of Public Prosecutors, but it became the Ibero-American Association of Public Prosecutors after the incorporation of Spain and Portugal,.

Its main objectives are the strengthening of mutual co-operation, solidarity and professional development relationships among its members and the building up of common strategies with a view to tackle the core problems Ibero-American Public Prosecutors have to face. The fight against organised crime (drug trafficking, terrorism and trafficking in human beings) and the protection of victims and witnesses are some of the dealt issues.

AIAMP is composed of 21 Ibero-American Public Prosecution Services: Argentina; Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Equador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguai, Peru, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Uruguai and Venezuela.

Currently AIAMP is presided over by the Public Prosecutor of Bolivia, and the post of Vice-President for Iberia is held by the Portuguese Public Prosecutor.

AIAMP is governed by the Articles of Association approved in October 2007 during the XIV General Assembly held in Madrid.
