Liberia’s Labour Minister As Anti-Human Trafficking Taskforce In Guinea

In an efforts to consolidate and advance a single strategy in the fight against Human Trafficking in the Mano River Union sub region, the Chairman of the National Anti-Human Trafficking Taskforce of Liberia, Labour Minister Cllr. Charles H. Gibson is in Conakry, the Republic of Guinea to hold discussion with authorities of that country.

The Government of Liberia through the National Anti-Human Trafficking Taskforce is seeking consensus from member states of the MRU to convene a mini summit early this year in Monrovia to discuss issues relating to the increase wave of human trafficking in the sub region.

The summit will also look at the illegal operations of criminal network and agents involved in the recruitment of people in the region for employment in foreign countries.

In December of 2021, Minister Gibson paid similar official visit to the Republic of Sierra Leone and held discussions with his counterparts in the same vein.

Minister Gibson is being accompanied by Mr. Adolphus G. Satiah, Director of the National Anti-Human Trafficking Taskforce Secretariat, Police Chief Investigator of the joint LNP-LIS Unit on Human Trafficking, and Mr. Joseph Kortu Nyandibo, Director of Communications, Ministry of Labour.
