Jamaica, Honduras Sign Security Pact to Fight Organized Crime

CARIBBEAN / 22 SEP 2011 BY JEANNA CULLINAN EN

Honduras’ security and defense ministers met with their Jamaican counterparts in Tegucigalpa to sign a pact strengthening security cooperation as part of the fight against organized crime.

The agreement sets the stage for the establishment of a committee to improve cooperation between law enforcement authorities in Jamaica and Honduras.

The committee will provide a framework for sharing intelligence on transnational crime between the Jamaica Constabulary and Defence Forces and the Honduran National Police and Navy Forces.

The two countries committed to begin talks on how to deal with the threat from drug trafficking and organized crime.

Jamaica’s National Security Minister recently signed a similar agreement regarding bilateral security cooperation with Cuba.
