Thailand deposits instrument of ratification for the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons

VIENTIANE, 24 July 2016 –Thailand today deposited its Instrument of Ratification for the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (ACTIP) to H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN. The handover took place during the 49th ASEAN Foreign Ministers Meeting and Related Meetings currently taking place in Vientiane. Thailand is the third ASEAN Member State to deposit their Instrument of Ratification, after Cambodia and Singapore deposited theirs in January this year.

Thailand’s ratification of the ACTIP represents a step closer to the entry into force of the Convention which would take effect on the 30th day upon submission of the Instrument of Ratification by the sixth ASEAN Member State.

The signing of the ACTIP by the Leaders at the 27th ASEAN Summit in November 2015 marks a significant achievement for ASEAN’s commitment in the fight against trafficking in persons. The Convention is victim-centered, which ensures that the rights of the victims are protected. It also allows national and regional cooperation and collaboration to combat trafficking in persons with the involvement of various stakeholders.

Once the Convention enters into force, its implementation will assist ASEAN Member States, either as country of origin, transit or destination, to effectively address trafficking in persons.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
