Committing criminal acts and other illegal acts is growing in the whole world. Compared to previous periods when murders and robbery dominated, today business crime, trade with narcotics and internet crime are dominant. Each year people who commit such acts afflict billion loses for business of every country.
Therefore the effort of these countries to deal with criminals and suppress crime is not surprising. In most cases they manage to just that, but even still there is a large number of most serious criminal acts that are never discovered. A saying that crime does not pay off clearly does not apply for these 10 crimes that until today remain unsolved and their actors free.
