Within this trend, a number of countries have considered decriminalisation or depenalisation models and many have, at least initially, considered threshold quantities as a good way to distinguish between what is possession and what is supply or trafficking and as a means to ensure that the sentences imposed are proportionate to the harmfulness of the offence.
TNI organises a major conference, 'European Parliamentary Conference on South African Destabilisation Efforts', for parliamentarians in The Hague, where government ministers from Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Angola deliver briefings on the South African government's economic and military destabilisation of their nations.
