Caribbean Security Organization to Establish Asset Recovery Unit

SAN JUAN – The Barbados-based Regional Security System will launch next week an asset recovery unit to tackle organized crime in the Caribbean region, thanks to a grant of 2.4 million pounds ($3.6 million) from Britain.

The initiative was formalized in a memorandum of understanding signed by RSS Director Grantley Watson and the head of Caribbean affairs of Britain’s Department for International Development, Colleen Wainwright.

Watson said the region suffers from violence connected to drug trafficking and that the asset recovery unit will enable countries to seize criminals’ ill-gotten wealth, reducing their influence and power.

The RSS coordinates efforts among Eastern Caribbean countries in the fight against drug trafficking and has recently become involved in efforts to prevent terrorist activity in the region.

The RSS comprises the 15 CARICOM 15 member-states: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.

Brazil, Canada, Britain and the U.S. are also members, along with Dutch, French and British territories in the Caribbean.
