The Malawi Human Rights Commission says the country needs to invest in capacity building of more law enforcement officers to have an advantage in the fight against trafficking in persons.
The organization’s Executive Secretary Habiba Osman was speaking when she opened a three-day training on trafficking in person and legal framework for Dzaleka refugee camp.
Osman said that Malawi has insufficient manpower and unreliable data to help in combating trafficking in person.
Osman added that maximizing awareness and sharing information on trafficking in person is critical in ending the malpractice.
The training has been organized by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime(UNODC) and aims raising awareness about trafficking in person among refugees.
