Vatican City, Dec 12, 2019 / 14:25 pm
A group of around 50 women judges and prosecutors engaged in the fight against human trafficking and organized crime in Africa is meeting at the Vatican this week.
Hosted by the Pontifical Academy for Sciences, the Dec. 12-13 meeting reprises a similar summit held in December 2018.
Pope Francis addressed the summit privately for around 10-15 minutes in the afternoon of Dec. 12.
Judith Wanjala told CNA Pope Francis addressed the problem of human trafficking, "urging us to take positive steps to deal with this problem, which is affecting the entire world, so many countries."
