WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Hon. Sir Hartman Longley, Chief Justice of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, was amongst several Chief Justices and other high-level judicial authorities of the Western Hemisphere invited to participate in the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission’s (CICAD) High Level Dialogue on Alternatives to Incarceration for Drug Related Offenses, held in Washington, D.C., from December 1 -3, 2015. 

Accompanying His Lordship Chief Justice Longley to the High Level Dialogue was H.E. Elliston Rahming, Permanent Representative of The Bahamas to the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations (UN); Mr. Carl Smith, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of National Security; Mr. David Ramsey, Supply Reduction Officer, National Anti-Drug Secretariat (NADS), Ministry of National Security; and Ms. Krissy Hanna, Second Secretary/Alternative Representative of The Bahamas to the OAS.

Since its establishment in 1986, CICAD has served as a hemispheric policy forum for addressing the multifaceted issues and ever evolving challenges surrounding the drug problem in the Americas. In an effort to assist in the ongoing dialogue regarding alternative approaches to incarceration for drug related offenses, CICAD, through the aforementioned High Level Dialogue, sought to bring together OAS Member States to discuss, inter alia, proportionality in sentencing, programs and interventions under judicial review, measures in the administration of justice in drug related cases involving juvenile offenders, social integration for drug offenders, and drug treatment courts for adults and juveniles. Additionally, the High Level Dialogue provided an opportunity for participating delegations to share their respective experiences and models in respect of alternatives to incarceration.

The Bahamas Government assumed the post of Vice Chair of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) on 11th November, 2015 during the 58th Regular Session of the Commission, in Trujillo, Peru, and remains committed to working in tandem with CICAD and its regional and international partners in the fight against drugs and its residual social and economic effects.
