Awareness on human trafficking

PACIFIC Dialogue has partnered with the Fiji Police Force human trafficking unit to raise awareness on the issue across the country.

Funded by the Canadian Government, the NGO's initiative has reached communities in the Western Division. Speaking to Nadroga Navosa youths in Malomalo Village last week, acting CEO Patricia Kailola said cases of human trafficking had been increasing over the years.

"We are mostly concerned about the amount of missing people who are being reported to police," she said.

"I think that most of the cases are just teenagers being angry and going to a friend's home without telling their parents or close relatives.

"But some cases are genuine and that is something that we need to address."

She said young people needed to be made informed of the indicators that could help them identify a trafficker.
