Human Trafficking | 30/01/2018
Inspectors are about to commence an inspection of how the criminal justice system deals with human trafficking in Northern Ireland. Inspectors will meet with a range of justice and stakeholder organisations who work in this area, and would propose to engage with victims of these type of offences to hear, first hand, their experience of the criminal justice system.  Any organisations or individuals who are interested in contributing to this important work should contact the inspection team by email to [email protected].
A new report on Magilligan Prison published today (12 December 2017) has highlighted the positive work ongoing around prisoner rehabilitation and has described the progress made at the facility since it was last inspected as ‘immensely encouraging’.
