    Bernama reported that a second MoU signed Monday provides an avenue for strategic co-operation between the countries' respective law enforcement agencies, including information and intelligence sharing.

    "Among other areas to be covered by the transnational-crime MoU are terrorism, money-laundering and terrorist financing, commercial and economic crime, smuggling of migrants and cybercrime," said Malaysian Home Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.
