COSLA RESPONSE TO LAUNCH OF CAMPAIGN AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION

Councillor Kelly Parry has this morning (Tuesday) made the following statement in response to the launch of the Scottish Government’s campaign against human trafficking and exploitation.

Councillor Parry said: “I welcome the launch of this campaign to raise awareness of human trafficking and exploitation in Scotland. The trafficking and exploitation of human beings is quite simply a blight on our society and an abuse of people’s human rights and be in no doubt this is something that is happening here in Scotland. To this end we need to ensure this country is a hostile place for the perpetrators of this heinous crime whilst providing a safe haven for victims. COSLA has a long standing commitment to this work and remain committed to moving this agenda forward."
