The StopTraffickingSG coalition wrote an email on 15 Oct 2014 to all Members of Parliament requesting to meet with them to share our key concerns and recommendations with regards to the Prevention of Human Traffickng bill.
This is the email we wrote,
Stoptraffickingsg# is a coalition of NGOs comprised of Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME), Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2), Project X, Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), Maruah and the Singapore Committee for UN Women.
Two weeks ago, Member of Parliament Christopher De Souza presented a private member’s ‘Prevention of Human Trafficking Bill’ in parliament. The second and third reading of this Bill is expected to be early next month. As organisations that work on human trafficking, we are excited about this new Bill which will criminalise one of the worst forms of exploitation faced by migrant workers. We also believe this is an opportunity for Singapore to be a leader in the region in fighting this crime.
My coalition partners and I would be happy to meet with you to discuss our views on the draft Bill at a date and time which is convenient for you. I have attached a document which sets out the coalition’s position on trafficking in persons.
We look forward to hearing from you.
