Consultation on Measures to Strengthen the Response to Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Documents

Consultation description

This consultation document outlines a range of additional tools that could be utilised to help address the scourge of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in today’s society. The views expressed during the public consultation will help to develop these measures, including possible enhancements to the Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Criminal Justice and Support for Victims) Act (Northern Ireland) 2015.

Your views are vital in helping to develop proposals for consideration by an incoming Justice Minister and Executive in the new mandate, in order to ensure that justice partners can avail of a wider range of measures to bring to justice those seeking to exploit defenceless, vulnerable people in our society. We must also continue to strive to provide identified victims with the appropriate level of protection and support. 

This is an important issue and your views will help shape the criminal justice response to slavery and trafficking offences.
