1.1. Danger of international crimes

International crime may refer to:

• Crime against international law. It’s a number of crimes against international law that aare created by treaty and convention.

• Crime against humanity. It is an act of persecution or any large scale atrocities against a body of people, and is the highest level of criminal offense. Such criminal acts as murder, extermination, torture, rrape, political, racial, or religious persecution and other inhumane acts reach the threshold of crimes against humanity only if they are part of a widespread or systematic practice.

• Crime against peace. In international law defines as the act of military invasion as a war crime, specifically referring to starting or waging war against the integrity, independence, or sovereignty of a territory or state, and other military violation of relevant international treaties, agreements or legally binding assurances.

• War crime. It is a punishable offense under international law, for violations of the laws of war by any person or persons, military or civilian. Every violation of the law of war in an inter-state conflict is a war crime, while violations in internal conflicts aare typically limited to the local jurisdiction.

• International criminal law. It is an autonomous branch of law which deals with international crimes and the courts and tribunals set up to adjudicate cases in which persons have incurred international criminal responsibility. It represents a significant departure from ‘classical’ international law which was mainly considered law created by states for the benefit of states, but the individual is tended to ignore as a subject of the law. The most important institution is tthe International Criminal Court and two ad hoc tribunals:

· The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia

· The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

Another category of crimes is transnational crimes. “The word „transnational“ defines crimes that are not only international, that is, crimes that cross borders between countries, but crimes that by their nature have border crossings as an essential part of the criminal activity.” It also includes crimes that take place abroad. Transnational crimes are:

• Trafficking in human beings. It is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people for the purpose of exploitation. This sort of crime involves a process of using illicit means such as threat, use of force, or other forms of coercion and etc.

• People smuggling. It means transportation of people across international borders to a non-official entry point of a destination country for a variety of reasons. Mostly, travel without documents or prior approval to enter the destination country. This crime is totally equivalent to slavery.

• Illegal arms trade. It is underground massive global industry and business which manufacturers and sells weapons and military technology and equipment. These arms trade are using for illegal actions considered of massive crimes.

• Sex slavery. It is a special case of uunwilling slavery which includes such practices as:

· forced prostitution;

· single-owner sexual slavery;

· ritual slavery (associated with traditional religious practices);

· slavery for primarily non-sexual purposes where sex is common or permissible

• Terrorism.1.2. Terrorism definition

There are various descriptions of terrorism. It is defining as both a tactic and strategy; a crime and a holy duty; a justified reaction to oppression and an inexcusable abomination. This type of crime includes an effective tactic for the weaker side in a conflict. It may be considered as an asymmetric form of conflict which confers coercive power with many of the advantages of military force at a fraction of the cost.

Terrorism is increasingly common among those pursuing extreme goals throughout the world, that’s why preemption is so important. Despite all these actions pointed against the terrorism is a nebulous concept, even within fight against this crime we use different definitions. “The United States Department of Defense defines terrorism as the calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological.”

There are some key elements that produce terror in its victims:

· Violence,

· Fear,

· Intimidation.

Finally, we may consider all ddefinitions and make a conclusion that terrorism is a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim. It is violence or other harmful acts committed against civilians for political or other ideological goals.

Also terrorism is sometimes used “when attempting to force political change by convincing a government or population to agree to demands to avoid future harm or fear of harm, destabilizing an existing government, motivating a disgruntled population to join an uprising, escalating a conflict in the hopes of disrupting the status quo, expressing a grievance, or drawing attention to a cause.”

There is made global compromise that terrorism must not be accepted under any circumstances. That’s why this solution is reflected in all important conventions.1.3. The main reason for terror acts

The main reason for terror act is ideological motivation that will influence the objectives of terrorist operations, especially regarding the casualty rate.

Of course there are groups with secular ideologies and non-religious goals. Such terrorist will often attempt highly selective and discriminate acts of violence to achieve a specific political aim. They keep minimum amount of casualties that are necessary to attain the objective.

According to some literature “religiously oriented and millenarian groups typically attempt to

inflict as many casualties as possible. Because of the apocalyptic frame of reference they use, loss of life is irrelevant, and more casualties are better. Losses among their co-religionists are of little account, because such casualties will reap the benefits of the afterlife. Likewise, non-believers, whether they are the intended target or collateral damage, deserve death, and killing them may be considered a moral duty.”

Choosing the target often reflect motivations and ideologies.

Terrorist Groups intent is to commit acts of vviolence to:

• Produce widespread fear

• Obtain worldwide, national, or local recognition for their cause by attracting the attention of the media

• Harass, weaken, or embarrass government security forces so that the government overreacts and appears repressive

• Steal or extort money and equipment, especially weapons and ammunition vital to the operation of their group

• Destroy facilities or disrupt lines of communication in order to create doubt that the government can provide for and protect its citizens

• Discourage foreign investments, tourism, or assistance programs that can affect the ttarget country’s economy and support of the government in power

• Influence government decisions, legislation, or other critical decisions

• Release prisoners

• Satisfy vengeance

1.4. Terrorist groups

Because of mass different categories of terrorism it is used terrorist group definition. Nowadays there exist such terrorist groups as:

• Separatist. TThey follow the goal of separation from existing entities through independence, political autonomy, or religious freedom or domination. Their ideologies include social justice or equity, anti-imperialism, as well as the resistance to conquest or occupation by a foreign power.

• Ethnocentric. They persuasion see race as the defining characteristic of a society, and therefore a basis of cohesion. Their actions display attitude that a particular group is superior because of their inherent racial characteristics.

• Nationalistic. Their goal is the loyalty and devotion to a nation, and the national consciousness derived from placing one nation’s culture and interests above those of other nations or groups.

• Revolutionary. Dedicated to the overthrow of an established order and replacing it with a new political or ssocial ...
