Guyana unfairly targeted in US trafficking persons reports, says president

 

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) -- Guyana is unjustly judged and ranked in several key areas by the United States government, notably in its ability and will to combat trafficking in persons (TIP), President Donald Ramotar said on Thursday at the inaugural Guyana Investment Conference in Georgetown. Ramotar said that he had looked at the annual US State Department Report and found that it acknowledged that developed nations have similar issues. 

“According to the report, the United States has far worse versions of the same challenges that we face”. This was expected due to the fact that the US was much bigger, he noted. He said that US was cited for having some of its officials being found complicit in their involvement in human trafficking and child prostitution.  “Can you imagine if this were to happen in Guyana, what would be said about us? Yet the US is ranked at Tier 1 and Guyana at Tier 2,” Ramotar pointed out.
