The National Committee for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings holds an ambassadorial meeting

The National Committee for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings held an exploratory meeting under the chairmanship of Ms. Hoyda Ali Awad al-Karim, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Justice and Chairman of the Committee.

The meeting discussed a number of issues, the most important of which was the consideration of the impact of the war on the activity of illegal migrations and trafficking in human beings. It emerged from the debate that the activity of human trafficking did not stop during the war, but increased its frequency. Human smuggling gangs have developed different ways to avoid passing through the capital Khartoum.

The increase in gang activity is due to weak control and control in order to preoccupy the organs concerned with the battle of dignity and its consequences.

A number of people smugglers have joined the rebel RSF.

Cases of human trafficking of youths from a neighbouring State who were forcibly recruited by the rebel Rapid Support Forces (RSF), trained and forced to carry weapons and participate in the fighting between the Sudanese community and the rebel forces were also monitored.

The meeting also discussed reports on the recruitment of children into the rebel RSF and presented some reports on markets for the sale of abducted girls by rebel forces and their sale to sexual slavery reported by some newspapers and monitored by some local sources.

The meeting stressed the importance of reaching out to the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Humanitarian Aid Commission and various organizations to intensify and increase aid to reduce the causes of illegal migration and to fall into the clutches of trafficking gangs, particularly among displaced persons.

At the end of the meeting, it was agreed to prepare an emergency plan to address all issues related to trafficking in human beings in the country’s exceptional circumstances.
