Insufficient data on human trafficking

Insufficient data on human trafficking International Organisation for Migration chief of mission Solomon Kantha says its hard for them to ascertain the seriousness of human trafficking in Fiji as there’s lack of available data.

Kantha said the data only available on human trafficking in Fiji was available on the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions which shows that 27 people have been prosecuted for trafficking.

He said there can be possibly a lot of unreported cases of sex and labour trafficking in Fiji as victims may not know who to turn to for advice.

 “There is a study currently being undertaken by United Nation International Organisation for Migration and its finding is yet to be published,” he said.

“This study gives some overview of the different types of trafficking happening in Fiji. Whilst carrying out the study we have found that trafficking is sometimes complex to understand.

“The only way we can substantiate figures around trafficking is when there is a successful conviction on trafficking.

“Sometimes cases go before the court and it takes a long time to prosecute certain cases. It’s quite difficult to understand the extend of trafficking and in terms of number.

“The good thing is there have been number of cases of human trafficking before the court in Fiji and they were then prosecuted,” he said.

He said the only way to have human trafficking reported to relevant authorities is for the community to understand what it is and it is also important for community members to identify victims as some times it will be hard for them to report cases.
