Interpol Finds Out How The Metaverse Is Being Monitored – Metaverse – Crypto News Aktuell in German

The International Criminal Police Organization Interpol is working on how to monitor the Metaverse, a digital world projected as an alternative to the real world. Interpol Secretary General Jürgen Stock believes that the organization must be ready for this task in order not to be left behind by the metaverse and the technology that goes with it.

Interpol prepares to monitor the Metaverse

Law enforcement organizations face difficulty in adopting specific policies to enforce the law in the Metaverse. However, Jürgen Stock, the secretary-general of the international criminal police organization Interpol, believes that the organization must be ready to crack down on crimes happening in the digital world.

The organization is currently preparing to bring its action to Metaverse platforms, which are already being used by some crime-committing groups. In an interview with the BBC, Stock explained:

Criminals are sophisticated and skilled at adapting very quickly to any new technological tool available to commit crimes. We have to respond adequately to that. Sometimes legislators, police and our society lag behind.

These crimes currently happening in the metaverse include verbal harassment, assault, and others including ransomware, forgery, money laundering, and financial fraud. However, some of these are still in legal gray areas.

Crimes in the Metaverse

according to dr Madan Oberoi, Interpol’s executive director for technology and innovation, is one of the biggest problems the organization currently faces in determining whether or not an act constitutes a crime in the metaverse. Acknowledging that there are still difficulties in this regard, he stated:

When you look at the definitions of these crimes in physical space and try to apply them to the metaverse, there is a difficulty. We don’t know if we can call them crimes or not, but these threats are definitely there, so these issues have yet to be resolved.

For Oberoi, one thing is certain: In order to monitor the Metaverse, Interpol must have contact and be present on Metaverse platforms. As a result, the organization already has its own place in the Metaverse, which was inaugurated at its 90th General Assembly in New Delhi in October.

Interpol’s Metaverse platform also serves another purpose by allowing members of the armed forces in other countries to offer online courses and allowing them to directly practice the skills they have acquired in the Metaverse.
