Summary

On 23 December, in co-operation with the OSCE Presence in Albania, the Mission to Montenegro organized the first meeting between the national co-ordinators for combating Trafficking in Human Beings from Montenegro and Albania.

The aim was to define procedures for efficiently enforcing the ‘Protocol on Co-operation in the Fight against Human Trafficking’ signed by both countries in 2014, with the support of the Mission.

The protocol specifies the types of assistance to be provided to victims and potential victims of trafficking and victims of forced labour in the construction and tourism sectors, by improving the identification procedures, methods of reporting, and co-operation in criminal matters.

It was agreed to establish facilities to interview victims of trafficking at the Sukobin-Muricani border crossing.

The Montenegrin delegation was led by the National Coordinator for Fight against Trafficking in Human Beings, Zoran Ulama, who was accompanied by officials from the Chief Special Prosecutors Office, and Police Directorate.
