The Monaco Government has announced that the Police Department will be holding an arms and weapons amnesty later this month. Here are all the details. 

Between 25th March and 5th April, any illegally owned weapons can be surrendered without charge to the Monaco Police Department. 

A statement released by the Monaco Government regarding the amnesty reads, “Illegally owned weapons… are sometimes acquired as the result of inheritance or simply found and kept, most often without knowledge of the legalities of owning these weapons. Often stored without taking particular care, or even forgotten, these weapons create a risk of domestic accidents (involving children in particular) and, if stolen during a burglary, can be used in criminal networks.” 

The statement continues, “This [amnesty] operation allows honest holders of such weapons to easily dispose of them.” 

Individuals planning on surrendering arms or other weapons must make an appointment with the Police Department ahead of time. This can be organised by telephone, on +377 93 15 31 26 or +377 93 15 31 38, or via email:
