Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr., the head of the Philippine National Police (PNP), emphasized this accomplishment while outlining the accomplishments of the police force against human trafficking at the 24th INTERPOL Asian Regional Conference’s preliminary meeting on Thursday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The Philippine government “continued to display substantial and continuous efforts” against trafficking, according to Tier 1, the highest rating in TIP’s four-tier classification.

“The Philippines has kept its Tier 1 ranking in the annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report for seven years running. The State Department acknowledged Manila’s support for 1,143 Filipino trafficking survivors from the Middle East and Asia and 6,772 potential victims of human trafficking “In a statement on Friday, Azurin added.

Azurin stated that the Philippines exhibits a serious and ongoing effort during the reporting period and that the nation completely complies with the minimal requirements for the elimination of trafficking.

He continued, “It praised the nation’s efforts to convict and punish traffickers as well as the greater use of prosecution techniques, preventing further suffering to the victims.

The PNP head also distributed a report from the Women and Children Protection Center (WCPC) of the organization, which showed that of the estimated 10 million Filipinos who work abroad in almost 170 nations, about 3% do so without a contract.

The Philippines is one of the countries from which victims of human trafficking are recruited. Middle Eastern nations frequently experience cases of labor trafficking, notably involving domestic or construction workers.

Azurin highlighted the increased coordination between the PNP WCPC and other government agencies through the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT), which serves as the government’s central coordination and oversight body for all anti-human trafficking initiatives. Additionally, the Overseas Filipino Workers or OFW Task Force was organized by the Philippines through the IACAT.

The PNP established a partnership with the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) and other private financial institutions, both domestically and internationally, to assist in the tracking of suspicious transactions between foreign or domestic individuals suspected of being involved in the procurement or solicitation of materials for child abuse.

According to Azurin, “Over the last years, the international community’s synergies have produced tremendous outcomes, which the Philippines will continue to support in order to fully confront the crimes that cross national lines.”

President of Interpol Ahmed Naser Al-Raisi, meantime, praised the PNP for its measures against migrant smuggling and human trafficking and urged other members to follow like.
