SUBJECT: TURKEY: 2006 DOMESTIC REPORT ON COMBATING HUMAN
TRAFFICKING IN TURKEY

1. (SBU) The GOT recently issued its 2006 Report on
Combating Human Trafficking in Turkey. The report provides
an overview of Turkey's anti-TIP legal framework,
international cooperation mechanisms, TIP prevention and
victim protection measures, and supporting 2006 statistical
data. The report, published in Turkish and English, is the
first "domestic" TIP report produced by the GOT, and a good
example of the close interagency cooperation the GOT has
fostered through its anti-TIP taskforce. The Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, Police, Jandarma, Ministry of Justice, and
IOM, along with the Human Resources Development Fund and the
Foundation for Women's Solidarity (the two NGOs operating
Turkey's two dedicated TIP shelters), all contributed to the
report. IOM also funded the printing. IOM Chief of Mission
Maurizio Busatti told us that he hopes future annual reports
will be released earlier in the year and explore in greater
depth the TIP issue in Turkey. He conceded that this first
report was mostly gloss. IOM Trafficking Assistant Meltem
Ersoy noted optimistically that the GOT interagency taskforce
has already created a technical working group tasked with the
production of subsequent TIP reports.

2. (U) Post has sent a copy of the report to EUR/SE and
G/TIP.
