DivinaLaw senior associate Atty. Jedrek C. Ng’s recently published book “Philippine Laws and Jurisprudence on Anti-Human Trafficking” is described by Dean Nilo T. Divina as timely and providing “ample legal reference to human trafficking victims whose numbers may increase due to the economic challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Envisioned to be a valuable addition to the legal arsenal to bring down the forces of injustice in our times, Atty. Ng’s book cites actual cases and jurisprudence. It discusses the Palermo Protocols and the United Nations Conventions Against Transnational Crimes and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. It also explains, outlines, and illustrates the two Philippine laws passed to combat human trafficking, namely Republic Act No. 9206 and the expanded Republic Act 10364. It discusses the relationship of these laws with other related laws like Child Pornography (RA 9775), Illegal Recruitment Act (RA 10022) and even Anti Money Laundering Act (RA 9160 and 10365). Finally, it discusses the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons and the United States Government Trafficking in Person Reports.
