Greetings from The Slave Detective,
This month has, in my view, been a damaging one for the Human Trafficking World. Two great Human Trafficking Detectives have retired.
DC Desmond and Detective Inspector Steve Wilkinson. Steve is a UNODC expert who trained the trainers for The United Nations.
Unfortunately The Metropolitan Police failed to recognise his expertise. If it were a business they would be hauled over the coals for this lack of vision.
Andy was The Detective who ‘bagged’ the first Ju Ju Trafficking case in this country, (with the unfailing assistance of another great Detective and Financial Investigator Steve Harries) DC Andy Desmond has retired, gone but not forgotten!!
All is not lost as he has focused his attention to assisting difficult victims whom the Police may not have the time to work with. He has set up his own company :-
Anti Trafficking Consultants Limited
I wish him all the very best. I think he will be in great demand within the legal profession
His first role was to give the IHRG another interview to pass on his learning. Please find below the links to a weeks worth of Podcasts.
Andy speaks to the IHRG from the heart in this excellent interview.
I hope there is something for you in it?
