“Convictions against human trafficking globally have remained extremely low. Between 2010 and 2012, some 40 per cent of the countries reported less than 10 convictions per year while some 15 per cent of the 128 countries did not record a single conviction,” he said, addressing a workshop on human trafficking organised by the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP).
Citing a global report he said 16 per cent of countries recorded no convictions between 2007 and 2010. The worst countries affected by the human trafficking are Bangladesh, Brazil, Haiti, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Thailand, Uganda, Ghana and China.
Some of these countries have human trafficking connections and routes to other countries across the globe, he said.
“These countries need to effectively tackle organised crime engaged in human trafficking for profiting through strong law enforcement apparatus, adopting public awareness, preventive and remedial majors apart from identifying, arresting and punishing traffickers,” Jolly said.
He said emphasis should be laid on education, public awareness, employment, eradicating poverty and economic deprivation.
“Empowering national law enforcing agencies, encouraging non state actors to help and identify for the eventual prosecution of human traffickers with fast track punishments shall enable the serious efforts of ICAPP to succeed,” he said.
