Human trafficking more noticeable in Angola
Luanda, Luanda – The trafficking of human beings has been more evident in Angola, said Friday in Luanda the director of the Criminal Investigation National Department (DNIC), chief commissioner Eugénio Pedro Alexandre. Speaking at a lecture on this phenomenon, in the ambit of the celebrations of the 33rd anniversary of the Ministry of the Interior, to be marked on 22 June, the police chief said the authorities have been noticing the growth of exploited workers in sectors like agriculture and coal exploration. He considered the trafficking of human beings a threat to national security, since it affects a country’s economic, social and political stability. Eugénio Pedro Alexandre reminded that human trafficking is one of the most serious violations of human rights, because the person is treated like an object.
