Council of Europe: Recommendations to Strengthen the December 2004 Draft European Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings
In this document Amnesty International and Anti-Slavery International welcome the aims of the draft European Convention against Trafficking. It concludes that, in order to meet these aims, several of the provisions, in particular those relating to identification, assistance and protection and repatriation as well as those relating to jurisdiction and the monitoring mechanism require strengthening. The provisions relating to non punishment of trafficked persons should be also strengthened. Amnesty International and Anti-Slavery International urge the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the Committee of Ministers to adopt the recommendations contained in this document.
