Minister of Foreign Affairs and Co-operation of Monaco Laurent Anselmi and OSCE Secretary General Thomas Greminger signed an agreement on December 5, 2019, on Monaco’s support for the OSCE project “Combating Human Trafficking along Mediterranean Migration Routes”.

Secretary General Greminger thanked the Principality for its continuous support for the OSCE’s work on combating human trafficking, in particular for the support given to the programme “Combating Human Trafficking along Migration Routes.”

Throughout seven simulation-based training sessions the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe has successfully trained 529 anti-trafficking practitioners from fifty-five participating states and seven Partners for Co-operation, ranging from law enforcement officers to prosecutors, labour inspectors, social services providers and civil society, among others.

Minister Anselmi said that supporting the OSCE’s work in combating Human Trafficking is part of Monaco’s wider efforts to take an active part in eradicating this heinous crime. “It is an objective present throughout the Principality’s efforts in all international organisations, but also in Monaco itself,” Anselmi said.
