Proposal for a Council Framework Decision on Human Trafficking

On 25 March 2009 the European Commission published a proposal for a Council Framework Decision on Preventing and Combating Trafficking in Human Beings and Protecting Victims to repeal a Framework Decision agreed in 2002 on combating trafficking in human beings (ref2002/629/JHA).  The objective of the proposal is to align measures at EU level with those of the United Nations and Council of Europe in terms of addressing prevention of trafficking in human beings, prosecution of the crime and protection of the victims of this crime. The intention is that the proposed measure will lead to a more coherent response to the fight against trafficking against human beings.
