T&T fully supports fight against organised crime in hemisphere: Ambassdor Parsan

Ambassador Dr Neil Parsan
Trinidad and Tobago’s Ambassador to the United States, Mexico and the Organization of American States (OAS) has committed the country to cooperation in the fight against against Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) in the hemisphere.
Dr. Neil Parsan told a recent consultation in Mexico City Trinidad and Tobago is very interested in a joint approach to the problem. He noted that the country attended all of the technical consultations held between May and September and added that T&T is committed to reversing crime, criminality and violence in the Western Hemisphere. Parsan further stated that Trinidad and Tobago is looking forward to the establishment of the Coordinating Centre of the Americas (CCA) to be established in Mexico.

He said T&T fully supports the comprehensive approach which is based on a platform comprising technology, innovation and other critical linkages to coordinate action. 

Parsan said T&T welcomes the technical and financial cooperation and fully embraces the policies that include social reintegration and harmonization of legal frameworks.

“It is often said what we do in life echoes in eternity and we believe that we are all duty bound as Leaders to leave this world a better place than when we met it. This document is a step towards that obligation” explained Parsan.

This cooperation agreement on TOC follows the commitment adopted by Heads of State and Government held during the Sixth Summit of the Americas held in Columbia in April 2012. 

The resulting CCA will be charged with responsibility of the comprehensive and systematic exchange of information within the areas of intelligence, investigation and prosecution using innovative investigation techniques for strategic decision-making among Member States.
