Police host Movie Night

In an effort to increase awareness in trafficking in persons, the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Unit (ATIPU) of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force will hold a movie night today, July 31.

The movie “Human Trafficking” will be shown free of cost at the Central Police Station in Kingstown at 7 p.m. Food and drinks will be on sale and ATIPU is urging persons to bring out the entire family.

Human Trafficking is a television mini-series about an American Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent going undercover to stop an organization from trafficking people, and shows the struggles of three trafficked women.

It premiered in the United States on Lifetime Television on October 24 and 25, 2005, and was broadcast in Canada on Citytv on January 2 and 3, 2006. It stars Mira Sorvino, Donald Sutherland, Rémy Girard, and Robert Carlyle.

International Day in Combating Human Trafficking was celebrated yesterday, Monday, July 30, worldwide. Locally, several activities were held throughout the island which included a radio broadcast by Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.
