ISRAEL: Appeal in Favor of the Victims of Human Traffickers in the SinaiLetter by William Gomes Salem-News.com
The Assembly of the Catholic Ordinaries in the Holy Land launched a renewed appeal in favor of the victims of human traffickers in the Sinai.
(SALEM) - Refugees fleeing strife and death in the Sinai are increasingly falling victim to human traffickers.
Officials in both Israel and Egypt have a big job on their hands if they intend to help uphold international humanitarian law regarding human trafficking.
Unfortunately, both governments are showing a stubborn unwillingness to offer aid to African Asylum seekers who are suffering a terrible fate.
Authorities in Egypt and Israel need to act decisively against the traffickers. One of the first steps will be the closure of their bases of activities. These criminals located on both sides of the border should be brought to justice by governments willing to assist victims and provide refuge for them as well as protecting these populations from the traffickers.
As our Human Rights Ambassador, William Nicholas Gomes states in his letter to Ron Prosor Israel's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, these two governments are responsible for the protection of dignity and physical and psychological integrity, and the right to due process and fair trial of asylum seekers and migrants.
