TIP task force handles 864 cases from June-September


Jakarta, IO – The National Police’s trafficking in persons (TIP) task force, with assistance from the regional police departments have rescued thousands of human trafficking victims.

National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Ahmad Ramadhan said the rescue was carried out based on 864 reports received between June 5 to September 21, per Medcom, Monday (25/9).

“We rescued 2,710 victims and arrested 1,104 perpetrators,” elaborated Ramadhan.

Ramadhan explained that the most common modus operandi was of dubious offers to work overseas where 525 cases happened to migrant and domestic workers.
“Then there were 283 cases related to prostitution, 69 cases of child exploitation, and seven cases where ship crew were the victims,” he explained.

Ramadhan appealed to the public to increase vigilance, especially if they are offered job overseas. “Don’t be easily tempted by offers of work with high salaries,” he cautioned.

“Make sure whether the recruitment agency is licensed so that you can get social, welfare and legal protection.” (un)
