ABETMENT

Section 2(a) of the MCOC Act, the term “abet” includes;

(i) the communication or association with any person with the actual knowledge or having reason to believe that such person is engaged in assisting in any manner, an organized crime syndicate;

(ii) the passing on or publication of, without any lawful authority, any information likely to assist the organized crime syndicate and the passing on or publication of or distribution of any document or matter obtained from the organized crime syndicate;
and

(iii) the rendering of any assistance, whether financial or otherwise, to the organized crime syndicate.

  1. The aforesaid definition, expands the meaning of the term ‘abetment’ as defined under Section 107 of the Penal Code. Rendering of any assistance whether financial or otherwise squarely falls within the dragnet of the abetment envisaged by Section 2(a).
