      Valiant Richey: The fight against trafficking in human beings is getting harder and more urgent

      Countries need to start looking aggressively at the entire business model of trafficking and tackle the conditions allowing the crime to thrive. At the OSCE, we launched a programme of assistance to countries who want to increase their prosecution: we help them train their police officers, prosecutors and judges. But everything starts with political will: countries need first to see this as a priority, says Valiant Richey, OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, in an interview to EUROPOST.

      The General Directorate Combating Organised Crime at the Ministry of Interior together with the National Commission for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, and with the support of EMPACT, have launched a campaign to prevent trafficking in human beings with a focus on sexual exploitation, named Blind Betting (https://youtu.be/KnXXluzMad8). This campaign, which was planned and implemented entirely by a Bulgarian team, is conducted under the slogan Don't Gamble With Your Future. It aims at drawing the attention of the public and groups at risk to the methods of engaging in trafficking, identifying and supporting the victims of sexual exploitation.
