Caribbean360, June 24, 2009: Barbados dismisses human trafficking allegations

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, June 24, 2009 - Barbados is the latest Caribbean country to defend itself against allegations that it isn’t doing enough to prevent human trafficking. …

Dr Byer Suckoo countered the allegation in the document released by the US State Department, saying that “government has privately and publicly expressed its abhorrence of this heinous crime”.

“The gravity and inhumane nature of this practice demands that we attack it on all fronts. We have to remain ahead of those unprincipled persons, so as to prevent human trafficking from occurring here, but if it does, we have to ensure mechanisms are in place to assist those victims,” she said.

Chat is cheap. The Barbados Government will have difficulty coping with this situation, as money is involved.
