Preparations hot up for ECOWAS security confab

Cotonou- Benin (PANA) -- Preparations are underway for the third ECOWAS conference of ministers in charge of security, billed for 30 August in Cotonou, Benin.
Ahead of the confab, some 60 police chiefs from the sub- region of West Africa are currently meeting in Cotonou in technical sub-committees.
The sub-committee meetings are evaluating implementation this far, of recommendations made last year in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire.
They are also examining the state of sub-regional cooperation in the fight against crime with a view to planning bilateral and multilateral police operations for 2001-2002.
