‘Times of Malta’ reports that Malta’s funding for the fight against human trafficking was slashed by 70 per cent last year, according to the US State Department. A State Department report on global human trafficking found that Maltese authorities had drastically reduced the funds allocated to the fight against human trafficking from the €153,000 in 2012 to €46,000 last year. This meant that Malta was still not complying with the minimum standards for the elimination of the illicit trade, the report concluded.
