Moldovan Border Police improves skills in fighting human trafficking

        In mid-October, EUBAM experts carried out advanced level training sessions on trafficking in human beings for mobile unit officers of Moldovan Border Police from the Regional Directorate East, Regional Directorate South and Regional Directorate West.

        The training event was divided into two parts, theoretical and practical. The theoretical part focused on differentiating between trafficking, human smuggling, illegal migration and prostitution. Just recently, the Moldovan Criminal Code was improved to have clear definitions for these terms.

        As gathering valid information is vital when detecting victims of trafficking, during the second part of the training, the officers practiced how to interview people. The participants also tried memory techniques and ways to work better with interpreter.

        The training sessions came as a continuation of the basic level training provided earlier this year on the same topic.
