Six CARICOM countries on Watch List for human trafficking

Six CARICOM countries put on Watch List for human trafficking

 The US State Department has placed six Caribbean countries (including Guyana) on its Tier 2 Watch List, with another four appearing on the Tier 2 List.

By Nelson A. King  – WASHINGTON, USA,  June 24, 2013 – (Caribbean 360)

Even as Caribbean Community (CARICOM) governments, during the past year, have seemingly made efforts in addressing human trafficking, the United States says many of them have still not done enough in tackling the issue.

In this nexus, in its 2013 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, the US Department of State placed six CARICOM countries – Barbados, Guyana, Haiti, St. Lucia, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago – on its Tier 2 Watch List.

Another four – Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Jamaica, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines – have been listed on the Tier 2 List.    Continue reading

Trafficking in Persons – by US Ambassador to Guyana, Brendt Hardt

Trafficking in Persons – by US Ambassador to Guyana, Brendt Hardt

Guest Colun – Demerara Waves – June 19, 2012

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released the 2012 United States Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report June 19 reviewing the efforts of 186 countries to combat the scourge of modern day slavery.  This year’s report, entitled “the Promise of Freedom,” calls on every government, including the United States, to commit itself to fulfilling the promise of freedom from slavery.

Some may ask why the United States prepares such a report on other countries. Our goal is not to criticize others, but to call attention to a global threat to vulnerable groups of people in order to stimulate global action to protect victims, prevent future abuses, and investigate and prosecute perpetrators of this modern-day slavery.           Continue reading
