The British embassy in Cairo and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) launched a four-day training workshop for Egyptian police officers on human trafficking, the embassy announced on Wednesday.

According to the statement issued by embassy, the workshop is being held at the police academy in New Cairo and it aims to train police officers representing all Egypt's governorates to identify and investigate trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants.

The training also aims to build the capacity of criminal justice authorities in Egypt, to effectively prevent, investigate, prosecute and adjudicate cases of human smuggling and trafficking.

"With over EGP 11 million, the UK is proud to support the Egyptian government’s efforts to put an end to illegal migration," British ambassador to Cairo John Casson said at the launch of the workshop, adding that he hoped the joint efforts with the Egyptian government "would reinforce the belief that Egyptians do not need to risk their lives leaving Egypt to build the future they deserve."
