Introduction

The definition of Transnational Organised Crime (TOC) is given in Article 3 of the corresponding United Nations Convention (UNTOC, 2000):

(a) it is committed in more than one State;

(b) it is committed in one State but a substantial part of its preparation, planning,

direction or control takes place in another State;

(c) it is committed in one State but involves an organized criminal group that

engages in criminal activities in more than one State; or

(d) it is committed in one State but has substantial effects in another State.

The following analysis is an update on transnational seaborne criminality. It is also an effort to better understand it and at the same time benchmark its most salient features.
