23 April 2019

The Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, Mr John Jeffery will deliver a keynote address at the launch of the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking in Persons National Policy Framework on Thursday, 25 April 2019.

The National Policy Framework (NPF) seeks to ensure all government departments and other engaged stakeholders from civil society are collectively guided in the implementation of anti-trafficking responses and of their legal responsibilities. The NPF also intends to support the implementation of the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking in Persons Act (Act No. 7 of 2013), which aims to ensure that the criminal justice system is effective in prosecuting the criminals and protects the victims of trafficking in persons.

The policy framework is a result of collective endeavours of the government departments, international partners, academia, relevant services providers and civil society organisations through consultative workshops in all the provinces, to guide the country on the inter-sectoral implementation of the Trafficking in Persons Act (2013).
