IOM HOLS MULTI-SECTORAL SUBCOMMITTEE MEETING

Botha-Bothe, Apr. 17 — The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Lesotho convened a meeting with stakeholders involved in the handling of Trafficking In Persons (TIP) cases.

In an interview with the agency, IOM’s Project Officer, Mrs. Mabaruti Motsamai, explained that the meeting aimed to pave the way for a new initiative focused on strengthening the capabilities of police, prosecution authorities, and magistrates.

“Today’s meeting was designed to introduce the project to its beneficiaries including the prosecution, magistrates, police and social development officials. Funded by the United States of America, the project aims to strengthen and enhance the abilities of these officials,” she said.

Mrs. Motsamai emphasized the necessity of ensuring that while combating TIP, government officials are also equipped and empowered to protect victims and prosecute perpetrators effectively. “In this project, stakeholders will receive a manual to foster uniformity in handling TIP cases,” she added.
