In The News: Head of US Anti-Trafficking Efforts Thanks BPSOS for Role in Jordan Case


A worker is helped by her colleagues after a Feb. 20, 2008 assault on striking Vietnamese guest workers at the W&D Apparel factory in Jordan.

February 4, 2009: In a recent interview with Radio Free Asia, Dr. Mark P. Lagon, ambassador-at-large and director of the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP), took the opportunity to reference the case of the W&D Apparel workers in Jordan.

He described the near-slavery conditions there as an example of the problem of trafficking in Vietnamese, and expressed “thanks to Boat People SOS, a nonprofit of Vietnamese-Americans, for intervening on the workers’ behalf.”
