IOM and Government of Sudan together build the capacity of those tackling human trafficking and smuggling.

IOM continued to work closely with the Government of Sudan (GoS) in countering trafficking in persons through a set of three two-day trainings, each focusing on different aspects of the national Anti-Trafficking Act 2014 based on the specific target group.

The first training was tailored to build the capacity of the counter trafficking police on the application of the Anti-Trafficking Act in the investigation of the crime.

The second training, to members of the Sudanese Bar Association, focused on implementation of the law in the prosecution and trial of trafficking cases.

The third training targeted a group of social workers, and had a special emphasis on protection of victims and witnesses.

This set of trainings is part of a strategic approach of IOM Sudan for 2015 - 2017 to enhance the three pillars of the process: investigation and prosecution of trafficking and rehabilitation of its victims.
