UN Day Against Human Trafficking 2021
Today, 30th July, is UN World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. No country in the world is free from human trafficking, and every country is affected by one or more parts of the chain. That is why it is important to take global action to prevent trafficking, protect victims, and prosecute the perpetrators.
We applaud the efforts of the Romanian authorities to tackle this crime, in cooperation with international partners, and we encourage them to continue these efforts and step up measures against this heinous crime. We must work together to target illegal financial flows, prevent the misuse of new technologies, and fund specialized assistance and protection services for the victims of human trafficking. We also need to work together to identify how we can best tackle the root causes of Human Trafficking.
