Jamaica signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified on 17 July 1998. It is not believed to have enacted domestic implementation legislation. It has not yet submitted its Article 7 transparency report, due by 27 August 1999. Jamaica participated in the First Meeting of State Parties held in Maputo in May 1999. In a plenary statement, Jamaica welcomed the first annual report of the Landmine Monitor and stated that “the work of NGOs like Landmine Monitor and the International Campaign to Ban Landmines...indicates the need to ensure their full involvement in the process of anti-landmine efforts worldwide.”[1] Jamaica voted for the December 1999 UNGA resolution in support of the Mine Ban Treaty. Jamaica has stated that it has never produced, stockpiled, used, or imported antipersonnel mines. Jamaica is not mine-affected.[2]
