Commonwealth Network of Contact Persons

The purpose of the Commonwealth Network of Contact Persons(CNCP) is to facilitate international co-operation in criminal cases between Commonwealth Member States including mutual legal assistance and extradition and to provide legal and practical information necessary to the authorities in their own country and Commonwealth Member States wishing to invoke international co-operation.

This is a new move aimed at enhancing co-operation within the Commonwealth and strengthening the existing Commonwealth Schemes namely the Scheme on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters (Harare Scheme) and the London Scheme on Extradition.
