Regulations and consequences of possession or carrying firearms [TGO6006]

The Embassy of Togo in Washington, D.C., as communicated by telephone to the IRBDC on 15 June 1990, indicated that firearm possession, carrying, transport and/or introduction to the country require a specific authorization of the Ministry of the Interior. The person interested in obtaining such authorization must submit an application to the Ministry providing specifications of the firearm and other details. Applications and authorizations are made in an individual basis, case by case and for each individual weapon. The source added that laws regulate the subject, and sanction those who do not observe them. Further details on the matter could not be obtained from the source.

Additional corroborating information could not be found among the sources currently available to the IRBDC.
