McWalters, Ian :
The Link Between Organised Crime and Corruption: A Hong Kong Perspective


The link between organised crime is very simple. Like any businessman, the criminal wants to maximise his profits by increasing efficiency, i.e. reducing the effectiveness of those institutions intended to regulate criminal activities by corrupting them. The author presents two detailed case studies of corruption and fraud by organised crime in Hong Kong.

Minnaar, Anthony :
A Symbiotic Relationship? Organised Crime and Corruption in South Africa


Corruption and organised crime exist in a kind of symbiotic relationship. Because of the relative isolation brought about by apartheid rule, the experience of a large-scale and sophisticated interaction between these forces is relatively new to South Africa. The claims of increased corruption, however, stem more from increased monitoring, than an increase in corrupt behaviour of public servants. The paper lists the context (geographical, political, economic, social and technological) which have led to the increase in organised crime in South Africa. The immigration service is taken as a case study to show the relationships between organised crime and corruption. Finally, the author lists specific measures to be taken to combat organised crime in South Africa.
