[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Ministry of Home Affairs presented its Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) with a mini-bus to assist in its transportation needs. This initiative is part of an ongoing process that the Government of Guyana has taken to ensure CANU’s resources are sufficient to fulfill its lawful responsibilities.

Delivering brief remarks at the simple handing over ceremony in front of the Home Affairs Ministry, Brickdam, Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee assured that all law enforcement agencies, including CANU, will be fully equipped, both with manpower and other necessary resources.

He also noted that despite its challenges CANU has performed very effectively in carrying out its mandate.

“Over the recent past, CANU has been doing a very good job in pursuing individuals who are engaged in the trafficking of narcotics,” the Home Affairs Minister said.

The constant capacity building and improvements at CANU will also send a stern message to persons engaged in drug trafficking, Minister Rohee posited.

Over time, the Government of Guyana has been making consistent efforts to improve the Unit.

These efforts have resulted in creditable performance by ranks of CANU, with the most recent major bust being the confiscation of a 63-foot, 18-tonne self propelled semi submersible (SPSS) vessel that was discovered at what was referred to as a ‘drug camp’ in the Waini River area in the North-West district.
