UN expert calls for an end to human trafficking in the Seychelles.

Joy Ngozi Ezeilo

The trafficking in persons in the Seychelles remains hidden as a result of a lack of awareness according to a UN expert.

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, recently visited the Indian Ocean archipelago.

She warned that the islands were not out of reach of traffickers and what she described as their "nefarious activities"

Ms. Ezeilo will present a report with her observations and recommendations to the UN Human Rights Council in June.

Derrick Mbatha asked her how serious trafficking is in the Seychelles.
