VIC­TIMS of traf­fick­ing are be­ing failed by gaps in Ire­land’s ap­proach, a new re­port claims. The Im­mi­grant Coun­try of Ire­land re­port high­lighted con­cerns ahead of their EU Anti-traf­fick­ing Day on Tues­day. Chief Brian Kil­lo­ran said: “To­day’s re­port ex­am­ined ex­pe­ri­ences of traf­fick­ing vic­tims claim­ing asy­lum along­side State poli­cies. “The out­comes are clear – we are fail­ing to meet their needs. “For ex­am­ple they should not lan­guish in di­rect pro­vi­sion while wait­ing for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, as it is only then they can ac­cess the sup­ports to which they are en­ti­tled.”
