Guyana slams trafficking report
|Guyana says the US assessment is unjustified
A Guyana government official has dismissed the just released US government report on human trafficking.
The report gives Guyana a Tier Two ranking, which means the nation has been deemed as not increasing efforts to combat human trafficking over the past year.
The document also suggests there are a significant number of trafficking victims.
Minjster of Labour and Social Security, Priya Manikchand, pointed out that in its 2009 report the US State Department acknowledged that Guyana was making significant efforts to combat human trafficking.

The minister denied that there was any evidence of a significant number of victims, adding that Guyana’s ranking was therefore unjustified.
