The Criminology Research Council will work on the questions of migration trends, prevention of human trafficking and transport crimes, its representatives decided at their first meeting on Monday, the Justice Ministry said. The topics will be included in the annual programme of the Council, which includes representatives of the Supreme Court of Cassation, the Ministry of Interior, the prosecution service, criminology, statistics, the bar and others. The studies will be assigned to special teams.

The specific teams for the studies and the methodology of their conduct will be specified at the Council's next meeting in December.

"This Council will work if we all commit to it beyond formalities and formalism," caretaker Justice Minister and Council Chair Krum Zarkov, told members at the start of the meeting. 

The Council will be an expert advisory unit for studying the problems and the root of crime. It will strive to develop preventative measures, organize criminological research, discuss possible changes in the legal framework and assist the Council of Ministers in the implementation of crime-related policy. The decree of the Council of Ministers on the establishment of the Criminology Research Council was promulgated in the State Gazette in mid-October.
