#AceWorldNews – AUSTRALIA – Nov.28 – Australia has extradited a man to the US over alleged involvement in Silk Road, a website on which people bought illegal drugs like heroin using digital currency bitcoin, Reuters said.

Peter Phillip Nash, 41, from Queensland, and two other men were charged with conspiracy to engage in narcotics trafficking, computer hacking and money laundering in December.

A spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s Department did not specify when Nash left or when he would face trial.

The two other accused, administrators for the website, aged 24 and 25, were arrested in the US and Ireland.

Nash was a primary moderator, according to the US indictment.

` Afghanistan will require 10 years of help with their `Infrastructure ‘ to Combat Drug Trafficking – FDCS ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 25 – Head of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FDCS) has stressed the need for helping Afghanistan’s comprehensive development within the upcoming ten years to make the fight with drug trafficking effective.

“To implement this ideology or doctrine on security through development, we need to organize Afghanistan’s comprehensive development in the period from 2015 to 2025 on the basis of alternative development programs of new generation, including accelerated industrialization and construction of basic infrastructures,” Viktor Ivanov told a meeting of the expert community on Tuesday in the run-up to a ministerial meeting of heads of anti-drug agencies.

“This approach seems the only productive way to resolve the priority task by the world community – to eliminate the global scale drug producing centre “in the heart of Asia,” he said.

UN Rights Expert Joins Call for Concerted Global Action to Fight Human Trafficking

A United Nations independent expert, along with two other key human rights mechanisms today stressed the importance of partnerships as the “backbone” of global efforts to tackle the scourge of human trafficking.

“Partnership is the backbone for effective coordinated efforts to implement a human-rights based approach while addressing this multi-faceted phenomenon,” <“http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=13869&LangID=E“>said  the human rights experts from the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the Organization for Co-operation and Security in Europe (OSCE), on the occasion of the European Anti-Trafficking Day.

“Cooperation between origin, transit and destination countries, but also with regional and international mechanisms, as well as private stakeholders such as multi-national corporations and civil society organizations, is essential for comprehensive responses to trafficking in persons.”

The UN Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children, Joy Ezeilo, underlined that trafficking is a grave violation of human rights which leads to further abuses.

“The rights of victims should be the beating heart driving all efforts towards eradicating this phenomenon which leads thousands of women, girls, men and boys in situation of profound exploitation and violence,” Ms. Ezeilo said. “The victims, whose rights are stolen, have to be protected, assisted, provided remedies, and re-integrated.”

Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry which has trapped some 21 million men, women and children in forced labour. According to 2005 estimates released by the International Labour Organization (ILO), profits generated in the sex industry alone are as high as $32 billion a year. Furthermore, nearly one-third of all victims of human trafficking officially detected around the world between 2007 and 2010 were children, according to a report released in December 2012 by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) citing data from 132 countries.

The President of the Council of Europe Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA), Nicolas Le Coz, emphasized that countries have a responsibility under international and European law to provide protection to victims to ensure their moral and physical integrity and prevent re-victimization, including by prosecuting and punishing the traffickers.

“Given the worrying proportions human trafficking has taken, there is a need to move from a national security model to a human rights-based approach in order to better identify and assist victims of trafficking who are often undocumented migrants,” Mr. Le Coz said.

For the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, “the realization of a victim’s right to effective remedies is at the core of the human rights-based approach as redress and compensation are the key stepping stones on the path to full recovery and social inclusion without fear or stigma.”

The three international expert mechanisms stressed that “a universal human rights-based approach is paramount to end human trafficking in the world today.”
