Technical table of the subgroup for the analysis of mixed migratory flows (REDTRAM)

Bogotá, October 28, 2020. In the framework of the Working Group on Mixed Migratory Flows of the Ibero-American Network of Specialized Prosecutors against Trafficking in Persons and Migrant Smuggling (REDTRAM) of the Ibero-American Association of Public Prosecutors (AIAMP), representatives of the Public Prosecutors' Offices of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru and the Dominican Republic met with the support of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC ROPAN).
This meeting was held to identify good practices and challenges for the context analysis of human trafficking and other associated criminal phenomena in the framework of mixed migratory flows in the region, to strengthen the understanding of criminal dynamics and the consolidation of tools for regional judicial cooperation.
Marcelo Colombo, head prosecutor of PROTEX in Argentina and representative of the Technical Secretariat of the Network, commented on the need to unify criteria for the exchange of information and cooperation in cases between the member countries of the Network and the Group.
Bienvenido Ventura Cuevas, Attorney General of the Court of Appeals and of the Specialized Prosecutor against Trafficking and Smuggling of the Dominican Republic, recalled the importance, within cooperation, of ensuring mechanisms for assistance and protection of victims of trafficking at all levels of international legal coordination and cooperation.
Miluska Romero Pacheco, head provincial criminal prosecutor in charge of the Trafficking in Persons Prosecutor's Office in Lima, Peru, shared that, in the investigation, Peru has incorporated the use of web-based avatars and social networks, which have facilitated the identification of human trafficking cases and recruitment through networks.
In the presentation of the Colombian Attorney General's Office, in charge of Leonardo Cabana Fonseca, specialized director of Support to the Investigation and Analysis against Organized Crime in Colombia, it was known that, with the help of BigData, cases and structures are analyzed, identified and extracted through keywords that facilitate tools for the analysis of criminal contexts, which are increasingly important in the fight against human trafficking and other crimes, in the current context.
This session, which was carried out virtually with the support of UNODC under the TRACK4TIP initiative, allowed the prosecutors to reach agreements for the construction of joint tools for the Public Prosecutor's Offices and Public Prosecutors' Offices of the Network.

This technical table resulted in the following agreements:

- To work with the context analysis groups of the countries' Public Prosecutor's Offices to articulate the analysis of information that can be understood at the regional or hemispheric level in cases of human trafficking.

- To use case studies to construct criteria of analysis to unify a language that allows the understanding of the phenomenon.

 

TRACK4TIP is a three-year initiative (2019-2022), implemented by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), with the support of the United States Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons / JTIP.
The project benefits eight countries in South America and the Caribbean with national and regional actions in Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Curaçao and Aruba.
The overall objective of the project is to improve the regional criminal justice response to human trafficking in the migratory flows of the beneficiary countries through a multidisciplinary and victim-centered approach, with actions at the regional and national levels to identify, prevent and prosecute cases.
