World Day Against Trafficking In Persons.

The ’World Day Against Trafficking in Persons’ today provides another opportunity to bring to light modern-day slavery and these horrendous violations of human rights which should never be tolerated.

As technology expands globally, the crime of human trafficking has also dominated cyberspace, which is why this year’s campaign, “Use and abuse of technology,” discusses technology’s role in facilitating and thwarting human trafficking.

With technology, traffickers recruit, exploit, and control victims; establish transportation and housing; promote their services and reach out to buyers, and conceal criminal proceeds – anonymously and with greater efficiency.

Despite its misuse, technology offers a great opportunity for its eradication. To accomplish this, law enforcement and criminal justice systems must use technology in this war against traffickers.

I, therefore, urge us to work together to spread accurate information from verifiable sources on social media rather than spreading false information which could contain cryptic messages between these criminals. By doing this, the chances of people falling victim would be reduced and security agencies can assist people who are in dire need.
