Organized criminal groups use intimidation, violence, corruption, and duress to create a demand for their services, beyond providing illicit goods and services. This Module has shown which specific offences underlie infiltration of business and government. These offences, including extortion, extortion racketeering, loansharking, corruption and money-laundering, are used by organized criminal groups to expand their domain and maintain control over a market, a locality, or a region. These offences are also used as a way to protect ongoing criminal enterprises from disruption.
