The Caricom Free Movement of Skilled Nationals could result in an increase of human trafficking in person in Caribbean countries.

This is according to Coordinator of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Unit, Department of Public Security of the Organization of American States, Fernando Garci-Robles.

Robles was at the time addressing the opening of a two-day workshop on trafficking in person today at the Regency Hotel in Hadfield Street.
