DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Piracy, armed robbery, drug trafficking and other illegal acts committed at sea plague the Gulf of Guinea with dire economic consequences for its riparian countries, including Ghana, Benin, and Cote d’Ivoire. Due to the reduced oil-prices and the weakened oil marked, attacks are no longer only targeting oil theft as previously seen, but also involving kidnappings for ransom, similar to
what was experienced in East Africa. The lack of prosecution related to piracy and armed robbery at sea continues to undermine efforts to combat such crime. It is important for the region to change this trend and ensure that there is no impunity to attacks at sea. The reason why most countries in West Africa are still not at prosecution stage is due to various factors such as limited national maritime capacities, absence of robust legal frameworks, insufficient domestic justice systems, and other factors inhibiting the legal finish of prosecution related to criminal activities at sea. This is emphasised by the fact that to date, there have been no successful prosecution for maritime piracy in West Africa. UNODC GMCP has been promoting legal reform and training maritime criminal justice
practitioners on the Law of the Sea and transnational organised maritime crime matters in the region. The support has comprised of legal assessments conducted with regard to piracy and maritime offences, establishing legal frameworks, and support in developing solid legislation in line with the UN Convention on Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and other international maritime instruments. The GMCP is working currently on improving the criminal justice action and responses in Gulf of Guinea countries under the US-funded projects on “Strengthening the maritime crime legal frameworks in the Gulf of Guinea” and “Strengthen jurisdictional and criminal laws and practice to effectively prosecute piracy and other maritime crime through simulated crime scene exercise and trials to ensure legal finish in the region of the Gulf of Guinea”.

In line with these projects, the purpose of the consultancy is to support Ghana, Benin and Cote d’Ivoire’s prosecution authorities in improving their legal response to piracy, and other maritime crime. To do so, the incumbent will coordinate work of various national consultants working in ongoing legal reform initiatives in these countries. The incumbent will further develop factsheets on judicial capacity in investigation and prosecution of maritime crime including piracy, armed robbery, fishery crime, arms and drug trafficking, smuggling of migrants, oil bunkering and maritime environmental crime for 6 countries.
