HRMI Submits Proposals to Combat Human Trafficking

January 7, 2016

In response to the invitation from Office of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania to participate in the public consultation on the prevention of human trafficking, HRMI submitted its observations and suggestions on how to combat this crime in order to improve protection of the rights of victims and to ensure successful prevention of this crime.

Although human trafficking is usually associated with a large, organized and cruel business, the reality shows that today such criminal activities can be carried out not only as a part of organized crime. Factual information shows the increasing number of individual cases, when a person or a family uses and/or sells workers, neighbors, friends, relatives and children.

HRMI invited the society to participate in a public consultation “Prevention of Human Trafficking” and to submit their proposals as well.
