Punish traffickers, help victims

The US Department of State on Thursday listed Taiwan in tier 1 in its annual Trafficking in Persons Report for the 11th year in a row. Taiwan’s consistently high ranking in the report demonstrates that the nation’s authorities take trafficking seriously and have been effective in combating it.

However, major trafficking-related arrests occur annually, meaning that preventive measures must be improved. Perhaps punishments are too lenient or perpetrators feel that the financial rewards from their actions outweigh the risks. It could also be that victims are unaware of the danger when, for example, they approach recruiters in their home country as they seek to travel for work or study.

Diaoyutais dispute pleases China

On Monday, the municipal council of Ishigaki City in Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture approved a proposal to give the uninhabited Diaoyutai Islands (釣魚台), which are called the Senkaku Islands in Japan, their own administrative designation of “Tonoshiro Senkaku” rather than just “Tonoshiro” — the name of a place on Ishigaki Island — with effect from Oct. 1.

The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) took the lead in objecting to this name change soon after it was proposed on June 9. The Yilan County Council approved an ad hoc motion requesting the Yilan County Government to designate the Diaoyutais as “Toucheng Diaoyutai,” since Taiwan places the islands under the jurisdiction of the county’s Toucheng Township (頭城).
