Again this year SI Dundee took part in Dundee Women’ Festival. Continuing to raise awareness of Human Trafficking we at SI Dundee Club were delighted to have as our guest speaker Detective Sergeant Robin Veitch from Police Scotland, Human Trafficking Unit.
DS Veitch gave a very informative and up to-date talk on the issues surrounding modern slavery in Scotland. In line with the proposed Human Trafficking Bill that is currently with the Scottish Parliament, DS Veitch explained that those who find themselves caught up in trafficking are treated as victims and given support to return to their homes and country of origin.
Over a hundred and forty guests attended the Open Night which reflects the current public interest in human trafficking.
