THE Anti-Trafficking Police Force, under the umbrella of the Myanmar Police Force, are aiming to eradicate the human trafficking industry in Myanmar by implementing preventive measures in the form of a public awareness campaign.
Anti-human Trafficking Police Force Unit-18 gave an educational talk on the prevention of human trafficking at a Child Protection course organised by the Committee of Child Rights in Keng Tung, Shan State (South) on Saturday 30 April.
Issues raised in the talks ranged from how to recognise the signs that someone might be a victim of human trafficking and the ever changing and adaptive methods and means of human trafficking (entrapment, transportation and sale).
An official from the Anti-Human Trafficking Police Force explained the differences between human trafficking and human smuggling, methods of recruitment used by human traffickers, the history of human trafficking, the process of human trafficking, human trafficking laws and the punishment for those convicted of human trafficking related crimes.
The police force gave out education pamphlets to 45 girl students who attended the ceremony.
