The Sudanese parliament expects to receive a draft bill from the cabinet soon containing an anti-human trafficking law, a legislator said today.

The Vice-Chairman of the parliamentary subcommittee on Legislation and Justice Tahani Tour al-Diba said that the national assembly will likely take up the bill in the next parliamentary session.

She revealed that the law punishes those involved with human trafficking with up to 20 years imprisonment.

Al-Diba made the remarks after meeting the Second Secretary at the U.S. embassy who is in charge of this dossier.

She went on to say that an entire article of the proposed law addresses the issue of cross-border crime.
