Over 40 attend training on human trafficking prevention

The United States (US) Embassy in Brunei Darussalam concluded a two-day virtual training on human trafficking prevention yesterday for over 40 Bruneian investigators, prosecutors, police officers, and government employees.

The trafficking in persons (TIP) training was held in commemoration of US National Human Trafficking Awareness Day on January 11 with the support of the US Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons and the US Department of Justice’s Human Trafficking Prevention Unit.

The training included discussions on employers retaining workers’ passports, living standards for migrant workers, abuse of household employees, victim identification and protection, and the Palermo Protocol, to which Brunei is a party of.
