Retired police officer David Rattan has been committed to stand trial at the High Court for human trafficking.

Rattan was committed to stand trial last Friday by Magistrate Antoine of the San Fernando 1st Magistrate Court.

In 2013, Rattan was charged under the Trafficking in Persons Act Chapter 12:10 by Woman Police Corporal Hector of the National Security Ministry's Counter Trafficking Unit (CTU) for recruiting, transporting and harbouring a Guyanese female national for the purpose of exploitation.

Rattan was also charged under the Sexual Offences Act Chapter 11:28 for serious indecency, rape and indecent assault.

Rattan is the second police officer to be charged by the CTU for human trafficking and related offences and committed to stand trial.

The ministry said if you suspect someone of trying to "lure foreign nationals to TT under the guise of assisting with employment and work permits", call the CTU hotline at 800-4288 (4CTU). All calls are toll free and anonymous.
