Table of Contents
<Previous | Next>


Saint Lucia signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 13 April 1999 and the treaty entered into force on 1 October 1999. It is not believed to have enacted domestic implementing legislation and has not yet submitted its initial Article 7 transparency report, due 29 March 2000. In July 2001, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs official told Landmine Monitor that Saint Lucia intends to file the transparency report but he did not provide a date for the submission.[1] Saint Lucia voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V, in support of the Mine Ban Treaty. It has never produced, stockpiled, transferred, or used antipersonnel mines and is not mine-affected.[2]
