Statement by Professor Michel Veuthey

Ambassador to monitor and combat trafficking in persons, Deputy Permanent Observer
Geneva, 1 March 2021

 

Madam President, Excellencies,

 

The Order of Malta would like to thank the Special Rapporteur for her excellent report (A/HRC/46/31) on the sale and sexual exploitation of children. The Order of Malta is mindful of the recommendations made by the Special Rapporteur. It wishes to strengthen its awareness-raising, prevention and protection  efforts to protect child victims of exploitation, through its multilateral and bilateral diplomatic network. It has intensified its medical and social programmes in many countries in the world against the pandemic through its National Associations and its world humanitarian organization “Malteser International”.

 

The Sovereign Order of Malta wishes to continue the dialogue with the Special Rapporteur and other stakeholders, including faith-based organizations, the business and academic communities, in order to share and optimize its best practices.

The Order of Malta continues its work to prevent and combat trafficking in persons by participating in actions, by organizing an online training course for helpers – already available in English –  and by contributing to the protection and rehabilitation of victims of trafficking, as well as by organizing webinars on human trafficking.

 

Thank you.
