As part of the activities conducted within the scope of the Global Action to Prevent and Address Trafficking in Persons and the Smuggling of Migrants (GLO.ACT), the city of Rabat is hosting a training session for instructors from 7 to 11 January 2019. This session is intended for prosecutors, judges, representatives from the Moroccan National Police and Royal Gendarmerie, and social workers assigned to the Ministry of Justice and National Solidarity.

These activities are part of the EU-funded GLO.ACT (Global Action to Prevent and Address Trafficking in Persons and the Smuggling of Migrants) programme. This joint European Union (EU) and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) programme, run in collaboration with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), was implemented for a four-year period (from 2015 to 2019) in 13 African, Asian, Eastern European, and Latin American countries, including Morocco.

The programme’s opening session was held on 7 January 2019 at the Tour Hassan Palace in the presence of Ahmed Chaouqui Benyoub, Interministerial Delegate for Human Rights, Hicham Mellati, Director of Criminal Affairs and Pardons for the Ministry of Justice, Jean-Pierre Sacaze, Head of Section for the EU delegation in Morocco, and representatives from the UNODC. This five-day training session will culminate in a mock trial that will leverage the lessons learned and best practices assimilated during these workshops.
