SEYCHELLES REFUTES UNSUBSTANTIATED
STATEMENTS IN US STATE DEPARTMENT’S
TRAFFICKING IN PERSON’S REPORT

The Seychelles government through the Minister for Foreign Affairs has invited the United States of America to verify what it claims to be unsubstantiated allegations about Seychelles made in the US State Department's annual trafficking in person's report.

Minister Joel Morgan expressed concerns following the release of the 15th Edition of the Trafficking in Persons Annual Report on Tuesday 28th July.

The report alleges that Seychelles is a source country for children subjected to sex trafficking and a destination country for foreign men and women subjected to labour and sex trafficking, respectively. Seychelles girls and, according to some sources, boys are induced into prostitution. In response, Minister Morgan said, "We note that these points that have come out as if they are facts in the report are actually not substantiated with evidence.”

The report also claims that the Government of Seychelles does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking. It however adds that significant efforts are being made to address that. “During the reporting period, the government adopted anti-trafficking legislation and began implementation of the 2014-2015 national action plans,” states the report.
 

Seychelles has maintained its Tier 2 Status according to the report. Minister Morgan described this as a share accomplishment for the whole population in recognition ofthe recorded efforts made by Seychelles to combat modern  day slavery.The national anti-trafficking committee, in collaboration with international donors, began the development of a victim assistance tool and conducted an extensive national awareness campaign on trafficking.
