Four possible victims of human trafficking have been identified by the Cyprus Police during real time training operations, in the context of an international training exercise, at the initiative of the European Cross-Border Control Organization – Frontex.

A press release by the Cyprus Police says that the training took place these days in Cyprus during which actual interviews of a number of people were carried out, with the aim of identifying potential victims of human trafficking.

The international training exercise led to the identification of four potential victims. The Cyprus Police will follow the matter through, in collaboration with other competent authorities, in order to establish whether they are victims of human trafficking.

The training exercise lasted five days, between April 15-19 at the arrivals halls of Larnaka and Paphos international airports and at Pournara reception center in Nicosia.

The Police in the announcement say that the organization of the international exercise to combat human trafficking, highlights, once again, the recognition of the work carried out by the Cyprus authorities but also the constantly evolving challenges, at national and international level.
