Anti-Human Trafficking Unit – “A victim centred response to human trafficking”
The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit
The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit’s is a recent project which was initially designed to facilitate the gathering, compiling, analysis and dissemination of data on Human Trafficking, with the purpose of better understanding the problem and improving SEF’s intelligence led prevention capabilities.
Conceptually the purpose of the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit is to provide intelligence and expertise in Trafficking in Human Beings, to allow an easier adaptation to this dynamic phenomenon and to devise and make use of the best and most effective tools in the fight against this especially serious crime.
In practical terms this translates into being capable of identifying and providing immediate response in alleged Human Trafficking situations (i.e. assess and confirm indicators and collect first evidence of a crime of trafficking) and on a later stage to articulate and assist the investigation alongside with the Prosecution Office.
The project started in 2013 and is still running.
