Trafficking in spotlight at weekend

NGOs and governments hope to put a cross-border spotlight on human trafficking this weekend as part of a campaign aimed at drawing attention to the issue in Banteay Meanchey province.

Authorities from both Cambodia and Thailand, as well as children’s advocacy groups Border Issue Group for Children (BIG C) and COSECAM, are launching a campaign Saturday in Poipet aimed at combating human trafficking along the loosely demarcated border between the two nations.

“Along the border there are plenty of issues involving women being trafficked, as well as migrant workers,” said Chhea Manith, secretary general and Poipet transit centre manager for BIG C.

The campaign is meant to coincide with Cambodia’s second annual Anti-Human Trafficking Day.
