Effective training tool on interviewing victims of human trafficking

On 28 February 2013 ROCA, alongside project GLO900, hosted a viewing ceremony of the training film "Victims Not Villains" for the governmental agencies of Uzbekistan involved in combating human trafficking and their training centres. ROCA also organized the film's distribution on this occasion. The ceremony was attended by officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Interior, Academy of the Ministry of Interior, National Security Service, Institute of the National Security Service, Training Centre of the General Prosecutor Office and  State Customs Committee and Military Customs Institute.

The participants provided excellent feedback and stressed the film's high quality, practical value and usefulness. As suggested by the participants, the DVD has also been handed over to the NGO "Istiqbolli Avlod", which stood ready to use it as a training tool during its courses for law enforcement agencies. Moreover, the representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs supported UNODC's proposal to distribute the film among the Uzbek consulate offices located in the main TIP/SOM destination countries.

To date, ROCA has delivered the training DVDs to the MFAs and relevant law enforcement agencies of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan. The film was dubbed into the Tajik language for dissemination among the law enforcement agencies and NGOs of Tajikistan.
