Judges play a crucial role in upholding the rights of human trafficking victims as well as in determining the guilt and punishment of perpetrators. In that regard, OSCE commitments and recommendations related to strengthening the role of judiciary as a part of the criminal justice system to effectively combat trafficking in human beings (THB) are outlined in the 2003 OSCE Action Plan to Combat Trafficking in Human Beings. The input from the UK professionals will assis in the continued development of the Uzbek judiciary.
