The UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants

DSC_7752_edited-1Yury Fedotov, Executive Director, UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UODC) said in his remarks at the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants: “We need to protect refugees and migrants from violence, abuse and exploitation, and strengthen action against human trafficking and migrant smuggling as part of comprehensive, human-rights based responses to the crises we face.”

He added: our approach must be more sensitive, recognizing that trafficking victims and irregular migrants deserve protection, and at the same time can support investigations to bring perpetrators to account;

To achieve these objectives, we have to be more focused, sustained and better resourced.

Shallow, time-limited interventions that fail to go after the real criminals risk punishing victims of crime while leaving transnational networks in place to threaten more lives and cause more harm.

Such responses take time, money and genuine commitment to pursuing the cause of justice.

They take:

Thousands of police hours, tracking leads on the ground;
Police and prosecutors pursuing parallel, coordinated responses that assist and protect victims while going after perpetrators;

Savvy investigators trained to follow the money, online and off, to fight organized crime through joint investigations, extradition and witness protection;

Agencies sharing intelligence and coordinating operations within and across borders;

and lawmakers committed to leaving no gaps for criminals to exploit.
