Indonesia Gets Aid Dealing With Human Trafficking

Several countries in southeast Asia including Laos, Cambodia, and Indonesia have created the Asia Regional Trafficking in Persons organization to deal with the enslavement of at least 800,000 people due to slave trade activities in the region. Australia will launch a program for training Indonesian police, judges, and prosecutors to assist in halting the trafficking in people. Many efforts at apprehending violators of human rights are able to get off due to laxity on the part of those in charge of enforcing the law.
