Indonesia: ICITAP Provides Trafficking in Persons Workshop in Bali Province in Preparation for G20 Summit

From September 19 to 20, 2022, the ICITAP-Indonesia Criminal Investigation Development Project collaborated with the Office of Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training (OPDAT) to provide the seventh in a series of regional TIP Workshops focusing on Victim Restitution and Assistance.  The workshop was held in Seminyak, Bali Province, and included ten police investigators and ten regional prosecutors.  Presenters included representatives from ICITAP, OPDAT, the Indonesian National Police (INP) District Office in Bali, the High Prosecutor's Office in Bali, INP Headquarters in Jakarta, the Indonesia Attorney General's Office in Jakarta, the Indonesia Victim & Witness Protection Agency, and the United Nations International Organization for Migration. Opening remarks were provided by the Head of the Denpasar District Prosecutor's Office and by the Deputy Head of the General Crimes Directorate from the INP District Office in Bali.  The timing of this workshop is pertinent because Bali will host the International G20 Summit in November 2022, an event expected to generate a sharp increase in human sex trafficking.  This event was delivered with support of and in coordination with the State Department’s Bureau of Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
