EU and France to help Togo and neighboring countries better fight human trafficking in the region

(Togo First) - The European Union and France injected about XOF12 billion in a project to fight human trafficking in nations of the Gulf of Guinea. Six countries are concerned by the initiative, including Togo, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, and Nigeria. 

A workshop was organized yesterday in Lomé to discuss terms of collaboration for its implementation. 

According to Alessandro Rabiossi, the regional director for the project, it aims to “support efforts made by the various entities at the front line in this fight,” in Togo. These include the “ministry of justice and security, the police and the gendarmerie.”  

Let’s recall that earlier this month, justice, security, social affairs experts, and civil society actors from Togo and Benin met in Grand-Popo (Benin) to discuss ways to better fight human trafficking.
