Trade - Restrictions on Sale/Transfer
Current national legislative controls:
Transitional Penal Code
Control of Arms and Ammunition
Whosoever, apart from the cases of traffic punishable under the Penal Code (Art 475):
(a) Contravenes the rules and regulation concerning the making and declaration, the trade in, possession or delivery, control or use of firearms or other weapons, and ammunition; or
(b) knowingly sells or delivers to persons not entitled to receive them, and in particular to infants or young persons, arms and ammunition or allows them to dispose of them without supervision, is punishable with fine or arrest.
The national legislation fully conforms to the Bamako Declaration.
The sale and delivery of small arms to persons not entitled to receive them is an offence.
