Jakarta. The Foreign Affairs Ministry has joined hands with the National Police to conduct a training for officials stationed overseas to improve the ways in which various emergency situations involving Indonesian nationals are handled.
Twenty-seven high-level officials from the Indonesian Military (TNI), the Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BNP2TKI) and Consortium of Indonesian Migrant Workers Advocacy received training on dealing with potential human trafficking victims, said the ministry’s director for the protection of Indonesian citizens Lalu Muhammad Iqbal.
“In addition to instructions on how to successfully identify and provide protection to human trafficking victims, the participants were also given basic forensic training from the National Police’s DVI [Disaster Victim Identification] unit,” Iqbal said on Sunday.
The exercise was staged in response the increasing number of human trafficking cases involving Indonesian citizens, he added, and was first conducted by the Foreign Ministry last year with the support of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
