A large-scale international project implemented under the management of the Ministry of the Interior “Preventing human trafficking and sham marriages: A multidisciplinary solution” (HESTIA)* is going to be accomplished by the end of December, launched in January 2015 with the key purpose to explore the links and analyse the phenomenon of sham marriages within the context of human trafficking, and to initiate a comprehensive action plan for their prevention. A manager of the HESTIA Project and National Anti-Trafficking Coordinator Ms Lāsma Stabiņa, in an interview with Apollo, presented the outcomes of the study conducted within the scope of the project, and key trends to pay attention to, in order to, if not eliminate this increasingly expanding issue, but at least to know how to identify it and prevent it from spreading further.
