Legal aid professionals receive human trafficking training

Some 20 legal aid lawyers have been trained on the elements that indicate the possibility of human trafficking and the legal provisions related to such crimes as found in the criminal code.

This was explained in a press release issued from the Ministry of Justice and the Parliamentary Secretariat for Reforms. The training was mandatory as indicated in the official procedures of the Malta Legal Aid Office. The exercise also included discussions on methods that could result to better identify potential victims of human trafficking under Maltese law.
