Sar Kheng asks officials to identify root causes of human trafficking

The National Committee for Counter-Trafficking yesterday told government officials to identify and address the causes of human trafficking in the Kingdom in order to have Cambodia removed from the US government’s Tier 2 Watch List.

Interior Minister Sar Kheng, who is also chairman of the NCCT, yesterday attended the 3rd National Inter-Faith Forum on Combatting Human Trafficking, where he said even though Cambodia has made serious efforts in combatting human trafficking, officials failed to maintain momentum built in 2017.

“In 2018, we achieved fruitful results in preventing and combatting human trafficking,” Mr Kheng said. “But results fell behind if compared to 2017.”
