Key Briefs & Reports: CAMSA Aims to Establish Database of Trafficking Cases

computerFebruary 13, 2009: The Malaysia office of the Coalition to Abolish Modern-day slavery in Asia (CAMSA) is building partnerships with local NGOs to create a centralized database of trafficking cases to be used for advocacy.

Many officials here are no different than their counterparts in most countries; that is, they are reluctant to recognize trafficking cases. What is more likely to happen is that a victim of trafficking will be thrown in jail for real or trumped-up violations of immigration law, rather than be afforded critical rights and services.

CAMSA’s goal is to complete this database of cases, to which we can easily refer when advocating for anti-human trafficking laws and policies, as soon as possible. The Malaysia office extends its gratitude to our local partners, as well as those authorities and other community leaders who are making this project possible.
