The Ministry of Home Affairs is taking a strong stance against human trafficking by establishing a dedicated department to combat this heinous crime. According to Home Affairs Permanent Secretary Dickson Matembo, the Anti-human trafficking Department will soon be fully operational, and its efforts are expected to significantly reduce the number of human trafficking cases. This move demonstrates the government’s commitment to protecting vulnerable individuals and ensuring that perpetrators of human trafficking are brought to justice.
The department recently received a boost from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, which donated laptops and books to aid in their efforts. According to Mr. Matembo, this new department will play a crucial role in protecting vulnerable individuals and bringing traffickers to justice.
This comes as United Nations UN Resident Coordinator Beatrice Mutali emphasized the importance of implementing advanced strategies to effectively address this issue. The new department will work towards preventing and prosecuting human trafficking, as well as providing support and resources for victims.
The establishment of an Anti-Human Trafficking Department by the government is a crucial step in combating the rapidly escalating crimes of human trafficking and migrant smuggling. As stated by Ms. Mutali, these crimes are dynamic and require immediate action to prevent further harm. The new department will work towards curbing these crimes and ensuring the safety and protection of vulnerable individuals.
The department will work closely with criminal justice practitioners to stay ahead of the constantly evolving tactics used by traffickers and smugglers. It is hoped that this new initiative will help to better protect vulnerable individuals and bring those responsible for trafficking to justice.
