Zero tolerance policy against human trafficking in Cuba

United Nations, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Justice Minister Oscar Manuel Silvera on Monday reaffirmed at the UN that his country holds zero tolerance policy against human trafficking and cracks down on this scourge, as expressed by the Cuban minister at the high-level meeting of the General Assembly on evaluation of the UN Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons.

Cuba, as a State Party to the UN Convention on Transnational Organized Crime and its Protocol on Trafficking in Persons, is firmly committed to preventing and confronting human trafficking crime, Mr. Silvera stressed.

Likewise, Silvera strongly rejected the unjustified and discriminatory inclusion of Cuba, for utterly political reasons, in the Report on Trafficking in Persons issued unilaterally by the US State Department.

According to Silvera, it is unacceptable that with no foundations, the United States accuses Cuba of promoting human trafficking or practicing slavery.

Such an action, Silvera stated, are on track for belittling praiseworthy work of hundreds of thousands of Cuban health professionals and technicians, who for decades and with solidarity and humanist vocation have voluntarily provided health assistance in dozens of nations, including more recently fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

In Cuba, he stressed, a zero tolerance policy has been implemented nationwide, based on prevention, confrontation and protection of victims.
