Cooperation Activity on the Legal Transposition of the Arms Trade Treaty for Togo

Cooperation Activity on the Legal Transposition of the Arms Trade Treaty for Togo

ATT

Event date: 04/02/2019 - 07/02/2019

Following the ratification of the Arms Trade Treaty by the Republic of Togo in 2015, the Government wishes to modernise the national legal framework in order to transpose existing international good practices for the control of arms trade. The National Commission for the Fight against the Proliferation, Circulation and Illicit Trafficking of Small Arms and Light Weapons (CNLPAL) steers the amendment process by having an inter-ministerial committee to finalise a draft law, in collaboration with the European Union Outreach Program in support of the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty (EU ATT-OP II), implemented by Expertise France and BAFA (Germany).

 

In order to contribute to the finalisation of the text, the partners exchanged, from 4 to 7 February 2019 in Lomé, on the topics of inter-agency coordination in the process of control of the arms transfers and questions related to transit and transhipment. In addition, this event prepared the drafting of the annual report which is a national obligation derived from the Treaty. Finally, the participants initiated an exchange of expertise with the view to establish the national control list.

 

His Excellency the Vice-President of the CNLPAL, as well as a representative of the Delegation of the European Union, inaugurated the activity, both stressing the importance of effectively controlling international arms transfers on the basis of a strong national framework anchored in legislation, pursuant to the Arms Trade Treaty.

 

The partners expressed their satisfaction regarding the joint approach implemented as well as the wish to continue their collaboration on these topics.
