Switzerland's international police cooperation in the fight against organized crime
Doctor of Laws (Fribourg University, Switzerland) Frederic Gisler is also a Public Prosecutor or District Attorney who wrote a book about Swiss cooperation in fighting organised crime. Which is heavily ironic because basically Swiss banks earn their keep laundering money for the world's drug lords, despotic dictators, and the worst of the worst of genocidal maniacs.
In MBA parlance, any Swiss cooperation in this regard would be regarded as "Moral Hazard": the fox is protecting the hen house as it were.
Be that as it may, the irony, heavy as it may be, is entirely lost on people who are actually as stupid, if not more stupid, than their actions would seem to suggest; but I digress.
Doctor Frederic Gisler wrote this book, and uses much floury language and legalese to describe the various paradoxes which police investigative procedure entails. He says that those investigative procedures are hard to rigorously define; thus, creating a framework for police forces to collaborate on an international scale is extremely challenging.
I don't buy it.
Perhaps the real reason Doctor Frederic Gisler can't clearly define investigative procedure is because in reality, in his role as a District Attorney, he doesn't actually do any investigating. Doctor Frederic Gisler is a fingernail puller; he uses violence, intimidation, torture and sexual humiliation to obtain confessions.
In any case, his actions bear no correlation to the kinds of investigative procedures he outlines in his book.
How could I possibly know this? I know it because I was the suspect in one of his investigations, and he tortured and sexually humiliated me; denied me water, a toilet, a lawyer, consular access and his police threatened to waterboard me if I didn't sign a form saying I was being "well treated".
Which begs the question: if Doctor Frederic Gisler doesn't practise what he preaches in his book, is his book worth the paper it's printed on?
In my opinion, no.
Furthermore, considering Doctor Frederic Gisler is a published academic; the creme-de-la-creme of The University of Fribourg; yet he fails to grasp the concept of "Obstruction of Justice" or "Evidence Tampering", one might rightly assume that law degrees from The University of Fribourg are most useful as toilet paper.
