Law enforcement standard operating procedures: for responding to trafficking in persons
06 October 2021
This document, the Law Enforcement Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for Responding to Trafficking in Persons, has been produced to support law enforcement in Lesotho to respond to trafficking in persons, including carrying out investigations and supporting prosecutions, as well as identifying victims of human trafficking and ensuring their appropriate protection.
The document sets out both legislative and practical measures. It is intended to be comprehensive, yet and user-friendly, in line with international standards and reflective of national structures, legislation and needs. This is a living document and will need to be updated periodically under the purview of the Multisectoral Committee to reflect evolving needs, trends, capacities and frameworks.
