With the support of the US State Department, Embassy of the United States Conakry, Guinea, Mr. Abdoulaye Kpogoumo, Mrs. Mmah Soumah, Mr. Mohamed Samoura, Mr. Mamoudou Magassouba and Ms. Joséphine Loly Tinkiano, received a 15-day training in Washington from September 14 to 28, 2018, focusing in particular on adaptive leadership.
Guinea is geographically located at the hub of illegal international trafficking of protected animal species. Thus, the capacity building of magistrates in the fight against the crime of wild animal species is a major issue for the sub-region.
Back in Guinea, the above-mentioned five magistrates met with the Minister of State, Cheick Sako to share their first impressions and set the objectives for a short and long-term impact. They are already working on creating a network involving the entire criminal chain (magistrates, judicial police officers, conservationists, customs officers).
“This will allow the flow of information between all the actors concerned, we must also strengthen border control, and it is essential to raise awareness and popularize the wildlife law with the citizens and the actors themselves. new law tabled at the level of the National Assembly will be voted soon “.
