    The third part was completely interactive. The movie Lili 4-ever, about the story of a trafficked girl, was shown to the participants, after which a constructive discussion developed on the reasons that drove a young 16 year-old girl into the claws of traffickers. The training ended with the presentation of the Manual for monitoring court cases and monitoring techniques, after which the participants were made familiar with the questionnaire and the ways it is to be filled out. A simulation of a court trial was carried out a criminal case, followed by filling out the questionnaires by the participants and analyzing the way they were filled out. We are free to say that the students proved themselves as good observers, which was also confirmed by the trainer.
