The Center for Advocacy and Human Rights (CADO) on behalf of 64 NGOs under art. 7 of Law no. 52/2003 on decisional transparency in public administration, sent to the National Agency for the Administration of Unavailable Assets today, June 10, 2021, a series of recommendations regarding the draft of the National Strategy on Recovery of Receivables from Crimes for the Period 2021-2025, which are presented in the document attached.
ONG-urile semnatare apreciază calitatea propunerii de politici publice și își exprimă sprijinul pentru măsurile preconizate și variantele de soluționare propuse, în special în ceea ce privește înființarea și funcționarea Fondului Național de Prevenire a Criminalității.
The signatory NGOs reiterate that the establishment of the National Fund for Crime Prevention (FNPC) is absolutely necessary to ensure the protection and assistance of victims of human trafficking or other crimes but also to prevent human trafficking, especially in the current context in which Romania, in recent years has become the main country of origin in the Community for victims of trafficking in human beings, citizens of the European Union.
In acest sens RoITP formuleaza o serie de recomandari de îmbunătățire a strategiei și documentelor post strategie, și anume:
– Given the scale of the human trafficking phenomenon, the establishment of a reasonable and sufficient budgetary allocation of 30% of the total FNPC for the assistance and protection of victims and for the prevention of this phenomenon;
– The fund should include a simplified compensation scheme for victims who cannot claim compensation if the offender has not been identified, disappeared or there are no assets unavailable in order to recover the damage that could be subject to civil enforcement. The establishment of this compensation mechanism will help the Romanian state to implement the GRETA recommendation from 2021, an obligation that must be fulfilled until the next evaluation in 2025;
– The fund should include a simplified scheme for the settlement of services provided to victims by private social service providers, based on a grant, accessible, legal, competitive time mechanism.
– Reformulation of the Fund’s guidelines by introducing victim assistance services because the protection measures already mentioned provide a limited framework of services to victims applied during court proceedings, but not before or after court proceedings such as access to health services, psychological counseling post procedures, educational services, labor market integration, etc.
