The U.S. says cases against human trafficking suspects rarely make it to court in Guyana, and officials say no one has yet been convicted of sex or labor trafficking.

Guyana's deputy police chief, Seelall Persaud, told The Associated Press that he could not comment on the report because he was in a meeting but would be available later for an interview.

Broomes said she hopes she can work together with government officials so the U.S. can be less critical of Guyana in next year's report.

"I use the report as motivation to stand to the challenge and say my country will not continue to be on the radar," she said.
