The closing event of the first national simulation training on trafficking in human beings was held today.

The training entitled - Fight against Trafficking in Human Beings: Sustainability of Inter-agency Cooperation through Implementation of National Simulation Training - is conducted in Georgia under the leadership of the Ministry of Justice, with the financial support of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Embassy of Switzerland in Georgia. The national simulation training was aimed at increasing the practical skills of about 40 investigators, prosecutors, labor inspectors, psychologists, social workers and staff dealing with victims working on the crime of trafficking through inter-agency cooperation and a victim-oriented approach, which in turn will contribute to the timely detection of crimes, the punishment of criminals and effective integration of victims into society.

Georgia is one of the first states where simulation training was held at the national level. This indicates the fight against this crime as one of the priority directions of the Georgian government.
