Can alternative modes of presenting victim testimonies increase chances of conviction?
Most victims of trafficking experience significant trauma and hardship that can stay with them for many years after their rescue.

Trafficked victims have varying needs for support and assistance, however what is generally common to the victim experience is the desire for some form of justice and restitution.

Some victims have a preference to have their voices heard as part of their journey to recovery, these are victims most likely to participate in criminal proceedings provided they are fully informed about the process, the risks, and what is required of them as a witness.

In the ASEAN region, many trafficking in persons cases are dismissed or result in an acquittal due to the lack of victim testimony.

The panel will explore alternative modes to protect trafficked victims/witnesses when giving evidence:

- His Honour Judge Martin Picton, United Kingdom
- Presiding Judge Cristina Javalera-Sulit, Philippines
- Intermediate Judge Ta Duy Uoc, Vietnam
- Atty. Kathleen Joy Piccio-Labay, Philippines
