New York, May 14 - Italy is playing a front-line
role in combating human trafficking, a top Italian
representative to the United Nations said Tuesday during a
speech to the General Assembly.
"The trafficking of human beings is an affront to the
dignity of individuals and a serious violation of the human
rights of its victims - especially women and children,"
Ambassador Antonio Bernardini said.
Bernardini pointed out how Italy has long "combated this
shameful crime" and how the country has long given priority to
protecting its victims, as well as to working to combat it on an
international level.
Domestically, Bernardini said that Italy had focused on
prevention, helping its victims and strengthening judicial
cooperation.
However, in the international arena, Bernardini said that
"the fundamental instrument" is the UN's convention against
transnational organized crime and the various associated
protocols, including those dedicated to women and minors, to
their physical and psychological assistance and to help in being
inserted into normal lives in host countries.
