John Casson: Smuggling and trafficking human beings is a crime that destroys lives
The British Embassy in Egypt inaugurated a series of UK-co-funded Judges Training workshops, in cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), to strengthen the capacity of newly-appointed judges and prosecutors all over Egypt through trainings on counter smuggling of migrants in Egypt under GBP 1.5 million (around EGP 33 million) PRIME project [Preventing and Responding to Irregular Migration in Egypt] which mainly supports the Egyptian Government’s vision to combat illegal migration.
The training will take place in Cairo, Alexandria and Upper Egypt governorates.
The UK Head of Programmes Arvind Mungur attended the event alongside Ambassador Naela Gabr, Chairperson of the National Committee for Preventing and Combating Illegal Migration and Trafficking in Persons (NCCPIM & TIP), Counsellor Omar Hafeez, Deputy Minister of Justice (NCJS), Carl Anderson, Head of DG Unit at USAID and Amr Taha, Head of IOM Office in Egypt.
UK Ambassador to Egypt John Casson said: “Smuggling and trafficking human beings is a crime that destroys lives. Britain shares the Egyptian dream that anyone who wants to succeed doesn’t have to leave but can achieve their dreams right here in a strong and fair Egyptian economy. So we are proud to work with PRIME and the International Organization for Migration to support the Egyptian government to battle human smugglers and traffickers. And we are proud to be Egypt’s number one economic partner creating jobs and opportunities for all young Egyptians, with $43bn of private investment this decade, and a new LE50m StartEgypt fund to support entrepreneurship.”
