Abstract: THE House of Representatives yesterday passed the Trafficking in Persons (Prevention, Suppression and Punishment) Act, which will implement provisions to prevent and suppress, as well as, punish persons involved in human trafficking. The bill was supported by the Opposition, but several speakers, including spokesman on national security Derrick Smith and MP Olivia Grange, criticised the timing of the bill as an effort to impress the United States that Jamaica was doing enough to control human trafficking.
