Speaking On: Setting the scene

“I am looking forward to this Symposium. It will give us a chance to see where we are and how we can work together to overcome and put an end to some of the most destructive and hideous crimes and illegal activities taking place every day on our planet. Please join us to make this Symposium a success. ”
