On March 29, 2016, Nakisha Chaney met with several delegates from Bangladesh to discuss the United States’ civil litigation system and its role in the anti-human trafficking effort.
As part of the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program, Bangladesh Counter Trafficking in Persons Program Project Coordinator Mahmud-un-Nabi, Assistant Superintendent of Police Mohammad Maniruzzaman and Public Prosecutor Md. Mokbul Hossen visited NachtLaw to discuss the United States’ effort to combat human trafficking through its civil laws. Ms. Chaney, who has litigated human trafficking cases in Michigan and South Carolina, offered the delegates an overview of U.S. civil trafficking and labor/employment laws, the litigation process, and the role of civil litigation in deterring and prosecuting human trafficking. The meeting offered a unique opportunity for the attendees to exchange views about the American and Bangladeshi systems of justice.
