Improved Investigation of Transnational Trafficking
Trafficking for forced labour is the most commonly identified form of trafficking in the world. However, laws to support the criminal justice response to labour trafficking remain generally under developed and underutilized.
AAPTIP works with the Anti-Trafficking Units within the Indonesian National Police to implement activities that improve investigation of transnational labour trafficking.
AAPTIP is assisting the Indonesia National Police to tailor and implement the ASEAN ‘Training Program on TIP for Anti-Trafficking Unit Commanders’.
Improved Prosecutions of Exploiters
AAPTIP supports multi-agency workshops, involving law enforcement and victim support agencies, to enable frontline officers to more effectively collaborate in investigations and prosecutions of TIP in the fishing industry in Maluku.
AAPTIP aids multidisciplinary teams to improve coordination between investigators and prosecutors to enhance victim identification, investigation and adjudication of TIP for forced labour in West Java.
AAPTIP assists in improving knowledge of specific TIP law provisions by arranging multi-agency workshops on TIP for forced labour and inter-agency cooperation meetings.
AAPTIP has partnered with the Nexus Institute to increase victim identification and improve access to criminal justice sectors in TIP cases in West Java.
Regional Leadership and Cooperation
Improved transnational investigative cooperation leads to improved evidence. Better evidence collected through improved investigation skills reduces the current burden on the victim for evidence and testimony.
AAPTIP works with the Indonesian National Police and the Royal Malaysia Police to support cross-border cooperation.
This includes facilitating bilateral meetings, including virtual meetings, between the two counterparts which focus on specific TIP investigations of common transnational interest.
