NATIONAL PROGRAMPROFESSIONAL TEAM
This NATIONAL PROGRAMME includes a professional
team, specialized in different disciplines, such as:
psychology,
social workers,
doctors,
lawyers
and other social disciplines.
This team works together with the Police and Federal
security forces.
We coordinate actions with the special security forces
during a raid, a victim´s rescue or an investigation.
HOW WE WORK
Firstly the Security Forces break into a place of exploitation, seconds later this
Professional Team enters, makes sure the assitance of the victims and then they
are separated from the traffickers and clients that are in the place
A Psychologist and a Social Worker will carry on a personal interview with the
victim, informing the reason for their "presence" and of the Security Forces´s
one.
To avoid the secondary re victimization and to protect the victim, only this
professional team would be able to interview the victims.
*
A psychologist has to do the interview in a special
room, and it has to be video recorded. (with the relevance of a
testimony).
*
This directive is orientated to avoid repeating once and
again the personal testimony of the victim,
for instance in an oral trial.
*
One of the most important duties, of the professional
agents from the Program, is to elaborate reports with the most
relevant elements extracted from the interviews with the
victims.
*
In those reports this multidisciplinary team has to
develop the point of view of the victim and what it is not
available in a first interview or testimony for the judge.
*
The most common characteristic of human trafficking
victims is their vulnerability. That situation makes impossible
for victims to recognize themselves as such. The victims
incorporate the abuse, like a natural
part of their lives.
*
So these reports are used by the legal justice, like a
relevant element of evidence.
*
Through these reports, the prosecutor could prove how
and why the victims visualize themselves, the criminal and how
the criminal takes advantage of them.
The Argentaine´s Government, works articulately to
ensure the rights of the victims.
For instance:
*
The Ministry of Security: investigates, prevents and fights
against this crime,
*
The Ministry of Justice and Human Rights: rescues, assists,
interviews the victims and elaborates a report for the Legal Justice
system,
*
The Ministry of Social Development: recovery and
reintegration of the victims,
*
The Ministry of Labour to look for a suitable job for them,
Decree: “Erradication of the Promotion of Commercial sex
trade through messages and images published in the
media”
*
signed by the President in two thousand and eleven.
*
This policy not only enables the implementation of
Argentinean Laws, but also allows for the fulfillment of
international commitments assumed by most of the state parties.
It is important to mention that the “Palermo Protocol UN Human
Trafficking Working Group”, have recommended its parties the
adoption of similar measures.
*
The banning of sex trade ads in the media contributes to
the prevention of human trafficking since these messages are
often used for the recruitment of women and girls for sex trade,
as well as for the promotion of places where sexual exploitation
takes place.
It also helps to suppress gender discrimination and the symbolic
and media violence contained in those ads through which
women are treated as objects.
THE NATIONAL PROGRAMME OF RESCUES AND ACCOMPANYING
TO THE VICTIMS OF THE CRIME OF TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS
*
works all over the country, with its headquarters in the
capital city and agencies in different regions of the country.
*
These agencies replicated the “modus operandi” of the
Program, with multidiciplinary professional teams, independent
from the security force, to assist and interview the victims.
*
All of them with the same “goal” to eradicates this crime.
Thanks for your kind attention.“
