Caught Red-Handed Commences with Final Workshop on Prosecuting Fisheries Crime

Fisheries Crime Prosecution

On April 22-23, Secure Fisheries' Robert Mazurek chaired the last in a series of Caught Red-Handed workshops in the Seychelles for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.  The Plenary Workshop for Senior Fisheries Officers and Public Prosecutors to Counter Fisheries Crime gathered fisheries officers and prosecutors from throughout the Western Indian Ocean in developing best practices for the prosecution of fisheries crime cases. Delegates contemplated the entire life cycle of a case, from the handover of the investigation, all the way through to charging, prosecution, and sentencing.
