SEYCHELLES REFUTES UNSUBSTANTIATED
STATEMENTS IN US STATE DEPARTMENT’S
IN PERSON’S REPORT
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.
Morgan expressed concerns following the release of the 15th
Edition of the Trafficking in Persons Annual Report on Tuesday 28th
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
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.
