Implementation of the Programme of Action
2. Results obtained
As part of its efforts to implement disarmament programmes, through its Office of the High Commissioner for the Reintegration of Former Combatants, the Government started another operation in line with the second stage of the weapons collection for development project (PCAD-2), from June 2008 to June 2009. The operation resulted in the collection of 618 weapons and 123,086 rounds of ammunition or explosive devices.
Two collection operations were also carried out in the Department of Pool in February and March 2009 and in July 2009. The goal of the operation was the collection of 5,000 weapons, as a result of the reintegration of 5,000 combatants who supported the Reverend Pastor Frédéric Ntoumi-Bintsamou, who currently serves as the Office of the President's Delegate-General for reparations of the legacy of war and the promotion of peace. The operation led to the collection of 3,854 firearms, 696 edged weapons and 176,092 rounds of ammunition, of different calibres, and explosive devices.
