Labor Urges Collective Fight Against Human Trafficking

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 8, (LINA) - Deputy Labor Minister for Manpower and Planning, Mr. Neto  Zarzar Lighe, has emphasize the need for citizens to fully participate in the fight against human trafficking in the country.

Speaking Thursday at the start of a two-day sensitization workshop held at the Gbarnga Administrative Building, Mr. Lighe said as part of a five-year plan to curb human trafficking, the Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force has embarked on holding workshops in nearly all 15 counties to strengthen the participation of all patriotic citizens in the fight.

“We are aware that we cannot battle alone and so this is why we have brought together a cross section of community leaders, including law enforcement officers to help us achieve this national objective,” said Deputy Minister Lighe to the Liberia News Agency in the county.

He stressed the importance of citizens getting involved because, according to him, the United Nations report on the act has indicated Liberia as a source and a point of distribution for human traffickers.

For his part, Gbarnga City Solicitor Attorney Julius M. Bemah Sr. praised the holding of the workshop, describing the act of human trafficking as ‘uncivilized and serious enemy to human existence.’

He called for the speedy prosecution of cases of human trafficking, promising to dispose of the only such case he has on the docket soonest.

The workshop under the theme; "Together we can fight Human Trafficking", brought together officers of the Liberia National, the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, legal actors, social workers and community leaders.
