Advice for RSS
THE UNITED STATES has urged member countries of the Regional Security System (RSS) to use assets recovery laws to hit the drug cartels where it hurts most – in their wallets.
The call was made when Consul General of the United States Embassy, Mark Bysfield, addressed the annual meeting of the RSS Council of Ministers at Hilton Barbados resort yesterday.
Bysfield told the meeting: “To those governments that have yet to pass the Proceeds of Crime Act, I urge you to do so. Civil asset recovery can be used to fund your commitments to the RSS while attacking drug cartels where it hurts them most – in their wallets.”
He also cautioned Caribbean governments about their controversial Economic Citizenship Programmes. (TY)
