Prosecution Of Regulatory Crimes Workshop, Accra, Ghana

The illicit trade of counterfeit drugs is one of the major setback to the fight and prosecution of regulatory crimes in Africa. Criminal groups take advantage of the gaps in legal and regulatory frameworks, weaknesses in the law enforcement capacities and insufficient internal and international cooperation.
AGA-Africa Programme in collaboration with the Food and Drugs Authority, Ghana (FDA) held a 3-day workshop on the Prosecution of Regulatory Crimes on 19th – 21st February, 2020 in Accra, Ghana.
The workshop brought together security agents from the Ghana Police Service: Drug Law Enforcement Unit, Regional Headquarters CID and Ports Offices & Interpol, the Judiciary, Prosecutors from the Attorney General’s Office and the staff of the Enforcement Departments of the FDA. The workshop was tailored towards building capacity of the investigators and prosecutors on the Prosecution of Regulatory Crimes and creating awareness among the participants on the menace of such crimes on public health in Ghana.
The workshop was graced by Delese Mimi Darko the Chief Executive Officer of the Food and Drugs Authority Ghana.
