Eurojust Strategic Meeting on Trafficking in Human Beings
On the occasion of the Strategic Meeting on Trafficking in Human Beings, Eurojust presented the state of art of the development of an Action Plan on THB.
Eurojust established a THB project with the aim of increasing the total number of prosecutions of THB cases and improving Eurojust performance towards prosecution services in Member States.
The main discussions were focused on the need to gather evidence of victims and provide them with better protection, to improve cooperation with law enforcement bodies and to develop innovative ways of using technology and the Internet.
in her key note speech, the EU Anti-Trafficking Coordinator, Myria Vassiliadou, emphasised the need to increase investigation, and prosecution of THB cases, as well as convictions of people guilty of them. She also commended Eurojust for taking the initiative for the project and the anticipated Action Plan (scheduled for autumn).
