Zoeller in Cuba to fight human, drug trafficking
INDIANAPOLIS — Attorney General Greg Zoeller is in Cuba to discuss the fight against human trafficking and drug trafficking with his Cuban counterparts.
Zoeller and several other state attorneys general departed Sunday and are scheduled to return Wednesday. Despite differences in the countries’ legal systems, Zoeller said the goal of the trip is to find common ground.
“This face-to-face meeting is the first step in creating a robust bilateral relationship that will promote the rule of law and allow cross-border collaboration on issues of mutual importance,” Zoeller said in a statement.
The meetings in Havana, officially known as the Alliance Partnership Binational AG Exchange, are a follow-up to previous meetings that the Conference of Western Attorneys General has organized between state attorneys general from the United States and their counterparts in Mexico and other Latin American nations.
During the trip, Zoeller and the other states attorneys general are scheduled to meet with Cuba’s attorney general, Dario Delgado Cura. They will also visit the University of Havana Law School and tour government buildings and historic landmarks.
The Alliance Partnership is covering the cost of the three-day trip.
