MANILA, Philippines - The Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) has set up a new website to provide public information and assistance, as well as monitor and address complaints, an official said yesterday.
Justice Undersecretary Jose Vicente Salazar, IACAT head, said the new public assistance site is designed to enable IACAT to extend its assistance and services to Filipinos both here and abroad.
“The IACAT Public Assistance Corner (I-PAC) provides a venue where the public can convey their concerns and complaints confidentially,” Salazar said in a statement. The public assistance corner can be accessed through its official website, www.iacat.net.
“This is in addition to the existing anti-human trafficking Hotline 1343 and official accounts in social networking sites,” he explained.
Salazar said he hopes the public will use the site extensively to provide the government with information pertaining to human trafficking activities and parties colluding with human trafficking syndicates.
