About Us

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. Victims are usually trafficked for sexual or labor exploitation under violence, deceit and threats. Drug smuggling, human trafficking and weapons smuggling are the most serious crimes in the world, and human trafficking is growing most rapidly among all.

Being one of the most important centres of transportation in the region, the MSAR Government has always been devoting great effort to combating any kind of crimes, especially those related to human trafficking.

On 30 August 2007, the Chief Executive has decided (vide Chief Executive Despatch no.266/2007) to establish the “Human Trafficking Deterrent Measures Concern Committee”, an interdepartmental body comprising representatives from policy areas of security, administration, justice and social affairs.

The Committee strives to come up with more proper and comprehensive measures to safeguard human rights, safety and freedom, and in a combined effort to take on prevention, victim protection and to combat human trafficking.
