Result of Service
The purpose of this assignment is to ensure that the STP and Angolan Coastguards, and any relevant authority in the field of maritime law enforcement (MLE) and maritime domain awareness (MDA) have the necessary skills to conduct successful operations at sea in response to piracy, drug trafficking, smuggling of migrants, illegal fishing, and any other forms of maritime crimes. To achieve this goal, the mentor will be embedded within the Santomean Coastguard and in Angola within the national marine or other more suitable agency after discussion with the host country in order to advise and guide everyday operations; organize training of staff and operations at sea; coordinate work with the Police and other maritime authorities; and carry out Visit, Broad Search and Seizure (VBSS) exercises. The mentor will also provide maritime law enforcement agencies in, STP and Angola an immersive experience to practice and develop key skills in responding effectively and in coordination to crimes committed at sea.
The overall objective of the mission is to draft Harmonized and Standard Operating Procedures (HSOPs) for the efficient collection and processing of evidence related to maritime crime for prosecution and legal completion in STP and Angola.

Duties and Responsibilities
The UNODC’s Global Maritime Crime Programme (GMCP) supports member states to respond to maritime crime challenges. As part of this work, the GMCP provides expert maritime law enforcement training and mentoring to member states in various regions around the world. Maritime piracy and armed robbery at sea continue to be a great challenge in the Gulf of Guinea. The UNSC, ECCAS, ECOWAS and Gulf of Guinea States have all expressed concern at this escalating phenomenon. Each has called urgently for international assistance in the area of criminal justice system reforms that will place regional States in a position to consider undertaking prosecutions of apprehended suspected pirates. Mentorship to maritime law enforcement and sea exercises in São Tomé and Príncipe (STP), and Angola are a few of the activities UNODC GMCP is supporting in that region.

Motivated by São Tomé and Príncipe (STP), and Angola's efforts to combat maritime crime, UNODC has been supporting both countries’ national authorities in building the capacity of judicial actors to effectively prosecute maritime crime.
In an effort to further strengthen the legal framework for combating maritime crime in Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe, the UNODC's Global Maritime Crime Programme (GMCP) has identified more than ever the need to develop harmonized standard operating procedures (HSOP) for state actors at sea when patrolling, collecting and processing evidence at scenes of piracy and maritime crime in Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe. The development of HSOPs in Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe will strengthen national coordination between the main entities involved in the fight against maritime crime. Throughout its programme, UNODC-GMCP has developed extensive knowledge and experience in providing capacity building and technical assistance to States in three main areas: i) legal reform in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC); ii) investigation and prosecution of piracy and other maritime crime through a full criminal justice support from hand-over of suspects, detention, investigation and support to preparation for prosecutions and trials. Further, inter-agency coordination has been ensured on the process of developing Harmonized Standard Operation Procedures (HSOPs) on evidence collection and handling, in order to increase successful prosecutions; iii) international law enforcement and judicial cooperation in criminal matters (i.e., extradition and mutual legal assistance) to achieve legal finish under the relevant regional and international frameworks including Yaoundé Architecture, ECOWAS and ECCAS treaties, as well as UNTOC.
