Until the end of May IOM interviewed 171 migrants returning from Turkey to establish whether any of them had been trafficked into exploitation or whether they otherwise required any assistance. Six among the respondents were referred to the State Fund for the Protection and Assistance to Victims of Trafficking in Persons and to specialized police units dealing with the combat of human trafficking and irregular migration
The migrant assistance service opened in Sarpi has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the US Department of State as part of the project “Building Capacity to Enhance Georgia’s Referral Mechanism and International Law Enforcement Cooperation in the Field of Counter-Trafficking”. This project will run until October 2012.
