Belize stays on Tier Two U.S. Trafficking In Persons Watchlist

Posted: Friday, June 26, 2020. 9:36 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: For the second straight year, Belize has been ranked with other regional nations in the U.S. State Department’s Tier 2 Watchlist in the Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP).

But while the U.S. acknowledges Belize has made “significant efforts” to meet the minimum standards of the U.S. Trafficking Victims Protection Act, it has not done so and it is in danger of returning to the lowest ranking, Tier 3.

The TIP Report says of Belize, “the government did not demonstrate overall increasing efforts from the previous reporting period. The government did not initiate any new prosecutions against traffickers and continued to apply victim identification procedures inconsistently, despite improvement in this area.”

It also cited lack of effort to identify and eliminate complicity in human trafficking at high levels of the State.

Several of America’s chief enemies are severely faulted for encouraging human trafficking including Mainland China and Cuba, but the Americans list themselves on Tier One as they have since records were kept.
