World Day against Trafficking in Persons today. On December 18, 2013, the United Nations (UN) recognized July 30 as World Day against Trafficking in Persons through a resolution in the General Assembly.
Like every year, different countries of the world including Bangladesh are celebrating the day through various programs including awareness rallies, and discussion meetings.
The UN resolution said such a day was needed to raise awareness of the plight of victims of human trafficking and to promote and protect their rights.
Nasima Begum, chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, said “ignorance” is the biggest cause of human trafficking. Most expatriates are not aware of their rights. An anti-human trafficking action plan has already been taken in our country to prevent human trafficking.
