The problem of human trafficking is becoming more acute every year.

The President of our country has repeatedly pointed out the unacceptability and absolute incompatibility of human trafficking with the fundamental values of our state, noting that this is not only a criminal offense, but also an insult to human dignity, and, consequently, a violation of fundamental human rights.

The simulation exercise was organized by the Academy of Law Enforcement Agencies at the Prosecutor General’s Office together with the Almaty and Karaganda Academies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, with the support of the OSCE Program Office in Nur-Sultan, the US Embassy in Kazakhstan and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
