At UN, Cuba Reaffirms Zero Tolerance for Human Trafficking

Geneva, March 31 (RHC-PL)-- Cuba has maintained a zero tolerance policy for human trafficking, a crime that violates the human rights of the victims, the country's diplomatic mission in Geneva stated.

The diplomatic mission handed over the National Action Plan for the Prevention and Fighting of Human Trafficking (2017-2020) to UN Special Rapporteur on Trafficking in Persons Maria Grazia Giammarinaro. The UN representative will reportedly travel to Cuba shortly.

The diplomatic mission said the report submitted by Cuba confirms the commitment by the country's authorities to comply with the protocol to prevent, suppress and punish human trafficking,  especially of women and children, which complement the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.

'Aware that human trafficking violates the human rights of the victims, the Cuban government has maintained a zero tolerance policy for this crime,' the statement said.

“The actions in this regard are based on three axes: prevention, fighting human trafficking and protecting the victims,” it added.
