The video “The Giant Ocean Case: Challenges in Securing Justice for Exploited Fishermen” explains the human trafficking ring behind the former recruitment agency Giant Ocean International Limited, now accused and condemned for human trafficking in Cambodia. USAID-Counter Trafficking In Persons CTIP Program supports 97 victims in this case that is of extreme importance since it is one of the few cases in the world where a licensed recruiting agency has been prosecuted under Trafficking In Persons law for trafficking men on fishing vessels.
The video also illustrates the ring of human trafficking from South East Asia to all over the world of people enslaved on fishing vessels. It explains the investigation of the case, showing the complexity and involvement of other countries and why it is hard to rescue people and to arrest perpetrators and all the different parties involved in the crime.
