E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ASEC ELAB KCRM PHUM PREL SMIG CO
SUBJECT: G/TIP PROPOSAL TO HELP ENSURE VICTIMS ASSISTANCE
AND ANTI-TRAFFICKING CONVICTIONS IN COLOMBIA

REF: A. A. STATE 161287

B. B. FAGAN-BRESNAHAN EMAIL 2/12/2008

1. As requested reftels, post provides the following
information on a proposal by the International Organization
for Migration to help ensure the safety of trafficking
victims and the prosecution and conviction of traffickers.

2.

A. Name of Applicant: International Organization for
Migration (IOM)

B. Funding Amount: $176,610

C. Project Title: Institutional Capacity-Building for the
Strengthening of Prosecution Activities: In Order to
Guarantee Assistance to the Victims in Colombia.

D. Project Duration: 12 months

E. Proposal Abstract: The IOM project proposes to contribute
to the Government of Colombia's Anti-Trafficking Operations
Center (COAT) to enhance prosecution activities in order to
guarantee adequate protection services for victims. In this
respect, the project seeks to strengthen the commitment and
internal coordination of the interagency task force who work
on the COAT, including the Ministry of Interior and Justice,
the Administrative Department of Security (DAS), the
Prosecutor General's office and the National Police, through
maintenance and updating of specialized equipment and tools
of the center, as well as specialized training of the
center's staff, in order to pursue prosecutions and prevent
re-victimization.

F. Post perspective: Post has had an excellent relationship
with IOM, which has been an implementing partner for a series
of G/TIP, PRM and USAID grants. Colombia's Tier 1 TIP status
is warranted, but significant challenges remain. The IOM
proposal would assist in the development of the COAT, a
critical component of Colombia's anti-trafficking strategy
and assist in prosecution, assistance, and prevention. Post
strongly endorses the proposal and recommends that it be
funded.
