Montenegrin judiciary and law enforcement officials attended Global Conference on Human Trafficking

In cooperation with the International Association of Prosecutors, U.S. Embassy Podgorica supported the attendance of a group of Montenegrin judiciary and law enforcement officials at the “Global Conference on Human Trafficking: Working Cooperatively to Conduct Effective Prosecution and Restore Victims.”  The visit supported Montenegro’s new Human Trafficking Task Force and provided participants with the opportunity to learn about new techniques and approaches in the fight against human trafficking.  These tactics include following the flow of money, gathering evidence on money laundering, tracking the use of crypto currencies, and providing victim protection services and retribution mechanisms.  Other subjects discussed during the conference included the benefits of international cooperation in reducing human trafficking.  The conference was held in Puerto Rico January 17-18, 2019.
