Trafficking in human beings


The fight against human trafficking has become top priority on the political and investigative agenda in recent years. The phenomenon of human trafficking is closely associated with the prostitution sector, and as such it would perhaps be more obvious to talk the offence of trafficking in women. One of the reasons to give this themed issue the title of Trafficking in Human Beings is that with the introduction of a new human trafficking stipulation in the Criminal Code, exploitation in other sectors than the sex industry are now also covered by the offence of Trafficking in Human Beings, such as the industrial sector, horticulture and the catering industry.
