US shames Malaysia, Thailand for human trafficking

After years of warnings, the United States Friday named and shamed Thailand, Malaysia and Venezuela dumping them at the bottom of a list of countries accused of failing to tackle modern-day slavery. The three countries, plus Gambia, found themselves added to nations such as Iran, North Korea and Syria already languishing on the lowest tier of the State Department’s annual report into human trafficking — a designation which could trigger US sanctions. US Secretary of State John Kerry said the 2014 Trafficking in Persons report “is not just a book… filled with stories that will touch you.” “Wherever rule of law is weak, where corruption is most ingrained and where populations can’t count on the protection of governments and of law enforcement, there you find zones of vulnerability to trafficking,” Kerry said.
