September 15, 2021

The U.S. Embassy in Liberia congratulates the Liberian Legislature on its recent votes to amend the 2005 Anti-Human Trafficking law in keeping with international standards.

We urge the Liberian Government to maintain this momentum by following through with similarly substantive efforts to end the scourge of human trafficking in Liberia, including by addressing the other recommendations found in the 2021 Trafficking in Persons Report.
