Guyana enlists in fight against cocaine trade at sea

Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the EU-funded Seaport Cooperation Project (SEACOP) which aims at maritime trafficking and particularly the cocaine trade.
The two-year project, budgeted at €3 million will train and equip inter-agency units to identify, search and interdict all forms of maritime trafficking.

SEACOP is executed on behalf of the European Union (EU) by the Spanish international cooperation agency Fundación Internacional y para Iberoamérica de Administración y Políticas Públicas (FIIAPP).
