Immersive training on Maritime Crimes in Guyana

Guyana, September 9, 2020. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, through the Global Programme on Maritime Crime in the Caribbean, provided immersive training on maritime crimes to 27 magistrates, prosecutors and coast guards of Guyana.

This training consists of the participants developing a practical case, from the moment of interception to prosecution, and solving it, in teams, in a collective manner.
The Global Maritime Crime Programme in the Caribbean team complements existing cooperation frameworks to enhance maritime law enforcement responses to maritime crime. One of the priorities of this program is to identify and analyze emerging trends and links in maritime crime so that Member States can develop informed responses. In addition, it develops advanced prosecution and adjudication capabilities and promotes awareness with frontline actors to ensure that maritime crimes end legally.
