PM addresses nat'l interfaith anti-trafficking forum

Prime Minister Hun Sen said human traffickers are opportunists who would try all means and even take advantage of the Covid-19 crisis to commit illegal acts when authorities are occupied with the fight against the pandemic.

Hun Sen was addressing the National Interfaith Forum on Combating Human Trafficking held on August 20 under the theme "May the World be Free from the Scourges of Covid-19 and Human Trafficking".

“We have to adhere to the spirit of humanity, compassion, and care for the life and dignity of humankind and all religions. I am proud to have maintained the prosperity of all religions in Cambodia through active cooperation and the culture of sharing with high responsibility in this difficult time,” he said.

He said the government has been working hard, with one hand trying to support the livelihood of the people and maintain macroeconomic stability, and another hand trying to stem the spread of Covid-19 by all means including prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of the people and the community affected by the pandemic.

Since 2017, the National Committee For Counter Trafficking (NCCT) has cooperated with the Ministry of Cults and Religions and other religion leaders in Cambodia to organise the interfaith forum aiming to address human trafficking and pray for Cambodians and people around the world.
