Counter trafficking operations are ongoing at the Me Asia Cantonese Restaurant on Ariapita Avenue, Port of Spain.

The National Security Ministry on Monday advised that investigations are currently underway to ascertain labour exploitation, immigration and other breaches at the restaurant.

It says the action is the result of a multi-agency exercise led on Monday by the Ministry’s Counter Trafficking Unit (CTU), supported by Police Officers of the Port of Spain Police Division, the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) and Police Traffic Branch, Public Health Inspectors of the Port of Spain City Corporation, and Labour Inspectors from the Labour Inspectorate Division of the Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development.

The CTU is at this time interviewing several foreign Asian nationals with respect to possible labour exploitation, which is trafficking in persons violation under the Trinidad and Tobago Trafficking in Persons Act Ch.12:10.
