Sweden's experience in fighting human trafficking will be considered within a seminar, due to be conducted in Chisinau on 9 November 2006, according to the International Organization for Migration.
Within the event, representatives of local and central public authorities, as well as international organizations and Moldovan non-governmental organizations will be familiarized with Swedish methods and practices to combat human traffic.
Swedish experts will propose to their Moldovan colleagues subjects related to the Swedish legislation in the field, which since 1998 has described as criminal the purchase of sexual services, as well as any activities of human trafficking.
