The Human Trafficking Secretariat says it is not against children being engaged in work or migration in general.
Rather its work among other things is to ensure that any job given to children is age appropriate, to prevent them from being exploited.
In an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana, Director of the Human Trafficking Secretariat, Abena Annobea-Asare said the organisation is against any work that prevents children from going to school.
She said that measures have been put in place to help rescue Ghanaians from child traffickers.
Madam Annobea- Asare said human trafficking is an offense punishable by law, and cautioned perpetrators to desist or face up to 25 years jail term.
