Togo works on a law to regulate weapon trafficking and use

(Togo First) - In Lomé, the CNLPAL and the European Union are currently holding a four-day workshop to produce a roadmap - that will subsequently yield a bill - to better control and monitor light weapons in Togo. The workshop started yesterday, January 6, 2019.

Mainly, participants of the meeting will expand on good practices in use at the global level, relative to weapon control. This, in addition to studying the projected bill. 

Regarding the latter, it focuses on the exportation and importation, transit, transhipping, and brokering of arms. Moreover, the draft bill also aims to regulate and monitor weapons’ whole lifecycle, from manufacturing to disposal. The document will thus include laws on carrying and transfer.

The CNLPAL is the national commission in charge of preventing the proliferation, circulation, and illegal trafficking of small arms and light weapons.
