The consultation, attended by members of law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, social workers and non-government organization representatives concluded that many barriers prevented victims of trafficking from seeking justice. As a result most victims of the crime of trafficking were not receiving a remedy for the wrongs that had been done to them and the number of traffickers prosecuted was low. One challenge raised by participants was the continuing confusion among legal actors about the applicable laws and procedures for trafficking cases. There was also a lack of clarity about rights of victims, and the roles of the various players in preserving and promoting them. The consultation resolved that a handbook about the applicable laws and procedures could considerably improve access to justice in trafficking cases.More information about human trafficking on the website of UNHCHR.
