Strengthen international cooperation in combating human trafficking

29/11/2015


Human trafficking is a serious crime and human rights violation. Each year, thousands of men, women and children are victims of traffickers in their home countries and abroad. According to the UN, 21 million people are victims of modern slavery. All countries are affected by human trafficking, whether it is country of origin, transit or destination for victims. Slavery, in the form of ancient and modern, is not only embarrassing but also as “the worst of all the despicable acts” which has no place in this world.
In 2010, the General Assembly of the UN adopted a global action plan to combat human trafficking, calling on governments to take measures to coordinate and deal specifically with this scourge. The plan called for fighting against human trafficking with the expansion program of the United Nations to promote development and enhance global security. One of the crucial provisions of the Plan is the establishment of a voluntary fund of the United Nations for the victims of human trafficking, especially women and children.
In 2013, the UN General Assembly held a high-level meeting to evaluate the Global Action Plan. The member countries also adopted Resolution 68/192. The resolution affirmed that World Day Against Human Trafficking is necessary to highlight the status of victims of human trafficking and promote protection of their rights.
The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said: Worldwide, the criminals sell people for profit. The most vulnerable victims of human trafficking, including acts of sexual abuse torture, are women and girls. That is often the promise of a good paying job. These migrants through dangerous waters and scorching desert to escape conflicts, poverty or persecution can also be victims of human trafficking. Victims can be people who are alone in foreign countries, where their passports are confiscated, sentenced to bear the debts and labor exploitation. Life of children and young people is stolen, and education is interrupted. The most basic rights and their fundamental freedom are violated.
"The networks of human trafficking are flourishing in the country, where the rules of law are uncertain and international cooperation is difficult.  The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged all countries to fight against money laundering, signe and ratify the UN Convention Against Corruption, the UN Convention Against organized Transnational Crime and the Protocol on Human Trafficking.

According to this senior official of the UN, we must also provide significant support to those in need, particularly with regard to the protection, access to justice and relief. All nations must unite to support and protect the victims as well as bring criminals to justice in order to eliminate this transnational threat.
