NIM Senior Legal Officer participates in Panama-OAS Regional Conference
VERTIC’s Senior Legal Officer, Yasemin Balci, participated in a regional conference, organised by the Government of Panama and the Organization of American States, on 6 – 7 February 2018.
The conference, held in Panama City, provided an opportunity for country representatives and technical experts to analyse, through presentations and debates, the different existing ways to prevent and combat terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and their means of financing.
The main risks and challenges that these threats represent for the region were discussed, as well as the current status of national implementation of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions. Moreover, participants updated each other on their national experiences in drafting appropriate legislation and investigating and prosecuting terrorist and proliferation offences, providing specific examples in evidence gathering and mutual legal assistance.
VERTIC is grateful to the Government of Canada (Global Affairs Canada / Global Partnership Program) whose financial support made our participation in the conference possible.
