People smuggling becoming a bigger concern in the Pacific

Updated May 31, 2011 17:42:14

The issues of people smuggling and drug trafficking are now becoming a concern for governments in the Pacific islands.

Some of these countries include Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga and Solomon Islands to name just a few.

In Tonga, the Supreme Court in Nuku'alofa this week jailed a Chinese national over a number of offences including human trafficking.

The woman was charged for illegally bringing two young girls from China to work in Tonga.

But how concerned are Pacific nations about human trafficking?

Presenter: Clement Paligaru
Speaker: Richard Herr, Ajunct Professor of governance and ethics at Fiji National University
