The Deputy Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Diana Asonaba Dapaah, has called for a comprehensive stakeholder discussion on human trafficking and child labour in the country. 

She emphasised that the fight against human trafficking and child labour requires a collaborative effort beyond government intervention.

Speaking at the National Justice Conference in Accra, themed “The National Fight Against Human Trafficking: Reflecting on the Journey So Far,” organised by the International Justice Mission (IJM), the Deputy Attorney-General and Minister for Justice reiterated that no one should be subjected to forced labour or modern slavery in 2024. 

She emphasised the importance of realigning cultural practices and societal mindsets against modern slavery.

“First of all, there is the need to sanitise ourselves, and one key area I talk about is where there is a lingering debate on the need to ensure that our children, particularly those who learn a trade, or that our parents have success in businesses.

“There must be a very healthy balance between ensuring that particularly children’s needs are met without prioritising some of these child labour concerns,” she said.
