"The presence of mafia groups and gangs of Chinese origin and their collu- sion with the world of finance and politics are historical facts in the [SEAsian] region and could represent today a real threat for its stability. These criminal networks tend to forge business link with their Japanese, Russian, Korea, Italian or South American counterparts and sometimes could interfere with the process of political decision making."
