GRETA publishes report on Latvia
The Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) has warned that official figures may underestimate the scale of trafficking in Latvia. GRETA has also urged the Latvian authorities to take further steps to prevent human trafficking, especially among vulnerable groups.
In its first report on Latvia, GRETA highlighted several important steps which have been taken in recent years – including the launch of two national anti-trafficking programmes and the creation of both a national coordinator and an inter-institutional working group. The allocation of resources to help victims was also praised, as was cooperation with NGOs and international organisations
