Application des lois et criminalisation

Les réseaux des trafiquants d'armes perfectionnées sont souvent démantelés. Les malfaiteurs en associations individuels sont mis à la disposition de la justice. Ils sont des criminels et traités comme tel.

Le recensement des fabricants d'armes de traite est en cours en vue de leur organisation pouvant permettre un meilleur suivi de cette activité.

Le Bénin s'est résolument engagé pour le strict respect des résolutions du Conseil de Sécurité des Nations Unies en ce qui concerne les embargos sur les armes. Le pays n'a jamais enregistré un cas de violation soupçonné.

Law Enforcement and Criminalisation

Networks trafficking sophisticated firearms are often dismantled. The individual perpetrators by association are made available to the courts. They are criminals and are considered as such.

The census of the manufacturers of slave trade firearms [craft weapons, or weapons for exchange] is ongoing, in order to organise them to allow better monitoring of these activities.

Benin is strongly committed to a strict compliance with the United Nations Security Council's resolutions concerning arms embargoes. The country has never recorded a case of sespected violation.
