Despite efforts, Macedonia doesn’t meet minimum standards for eliminating human trafficking, says U.S. State Department


The Government of N. Macedonia does not meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking but is making more efforts to do so, considering the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, if any, on its anti-trafficking capacity, according to the U.S. Department of State in its 2023 Trafficking in Persons Report on N. Macedonia.
“These efforts included increasing overall law enforcements efforts, including investigating, prosecuting, and convicting more traffickers,” reads the report.
“The Government established the Operational Team for Identification of Trafficking Victims (OTITV) to officially recognize potential victims and assist in coordinating victim care. The government adopted the Law on Compensation of Victims of Violent Crime, which provided trafficking victims the right to compensation and increased resources to the NGO-run shelter for trafficking victims.”
