Duties and Responsibilities
1. Background of the assignment

As the guardian of the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea, and Air and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children, which supplement the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) promotes global adherence to these instruments and assists States in their efforts to effectively implement them and combat the conduct that they criminalize. UNODC focuses, in particular, on assisting states in developing an effective criminal justice response to these crime challenges.

UNODC’s Regional Office for Southeast Asia and the Pacific (ROSEAP) is implementing a project entitled Strengthening the prevention of, and response to, migrant smuggling in Malaysia to provide support the Government authorities to effectively combat migrant smuggling and protect the rights of migrants. A core focus of the project is to strengthen law enforcement capacities to conduct investigations into both migrant smuggling and trafficking in persons using a human rights-based and gender sensitive approach.

Acknowledging the need to strengthen law enforcement capabilities, the Anti-Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants (ATIPSOM) and Anti-Money Laundering (AMLA) Prevention Division of the Immigration Department requested UNODC to develop a mandatory accredited course for their officers using a train-the-trainer (ToT) approach. Key to this training course will be a focus on enhancing law enforcement responses to both migrant smuggling and human trafficking by incorporating a ‘follow-the-money’ approach, drawing on anti-money laundering and asset recovery techniques, as the Immigration Division also includes an AMLA unit. UNODC provide support to the Immigration Department to embed this course in their training academy to promote sustainability.

2. Purpose of the assignment

To develop an accredited ToT curriculum for Malaysian officers based in the ATIPSOM and AMLA Prevention Division of the Immigration Department on migrant smuggling and human trafficking investigations using a human right based and gender responsive approach.
