Promoting Rights of Trafficked Persons
The NHC work to promote the rights of trafficked persons primarily targets professionals involved in their social or legal support. In cooperation with local NGOs, the NHC helps service providers and lawyers to build expertise about the rights that trafficked persons possess under the international law. They are empowered to effectively use this knowledge in contact with officials, prosecution and judiciary authorities, at times putting pressure in court to apply the international provisions in protection of trafficked persons, rather than see them only as witnesses against, or accomplices of, the traffickers.
