Trafficking in the Phillipines

Interesting article on updates to anti-trafficking laws in the Phillipines. I love the part where they suggest that victims would be encouraged to testify against their traffickers provided they could have "shelter, livelihood and moral support" from non-government organizations. Well, yes, that would be a start, but what about safety? If a victim of trafficking cannot be assured that they and their family members will be free from reprisals for testifying, then how do you convince a victim to testify?
