On Monday February 13th, Ambassador Beresford-Hill hosted Cardinal Vincent Nichols at our Mission. His Eminence was accompanied by Kevin Hyland OBE, the Chairman of the Santa Marta Group, and their Executive Director, David Ryall. Their discussion centered around the Mission’s fight against Human Trafficking and the initiatives being undertaken by the Santa Martha group across the world. It was agreed that the Sovereign Order of Malta Mission to the United Nations will continue to closely monitor international efforts in this area and will share relevant information with the Santa Martha group.
Their discussion was joined by Debbie O’Hara Ruskowski, Special Advisor on Human Trafficking to the Ambassador, and H.E. Mr. F.J. McCarthy, a member of the Order’s Sovereign Council in Rome.
