ASEAN-backed anti-human trafficking draft project will be amended in Myanmar, said Deputy Col Khin Maung Hla of Anti-Human Trafficking Squad to Eleven Media.
The project has been revised five times and will be further modified in June in Yangon.
“This project has been initiated in Philippines and amended for the fifth time. As human trafficking is rare in developed countries of ASEAN, we made strong discussions to convince them to participate willingly in this project,” said Khin Maung Hla.
Currently Myanmar has signed MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with China and Thailand for the suppression of trafficking in persons. The government is still facing difficulties in rescuing trafficked victims and protecting worker rights in the countries which have no MoU with Myanmar.
Myanmar has established liaison offices along the borders between China and Thailand for the rescue of trafficked victims.
