A TRAFFICKING in Person (TIP) briefing will be held on November 23 for Indonesian nationals residing in the country. It is organised by the Indonesian Embassy in Brunei Darussalam in collaboration with the Human Trafficking Special Unit, Criminal Investigation Department of the Royal Brunei Police Force.
It will be held at the Youth Centre from 10am onwards and is part of a series of activities to mark the 30th anniversary of Brunei-Indonesia bilateral relations.
The briefing aims to create awareness among Indonesian workers in the country on TIP to avoid becoming victims of trafficking and human rights violations. TIP is a worldwide problem posing a transnational threat involving violations of basic human rights. TIP involves exploitation of all types and includes elements of recruiting, harbouring, transportation, providing or obtaining a person for the purpose of exploitation.
Officers involved in the discussion include from the Royal Brunei Police Force, Attorney-General’s Chamber, Labour Department, Immigration and National Registration Department and the Community Development Department.
The Embassy of Indonesia also expressed its “deepest gratitude for the support and cooperation rendered by the government and people of Brunei Darussalam and also the Indonesian community” in supporting the briefing as it would enhance awareness to combat human trafficking.
