Human Trafficking Offences
Human trafficking offences may involve adults, or specifically women or children – often with a view to exploiting a vulnerable individual for the purposes of modern slavery, the sex trade, bogus marriages or even as an organ donor.
The Palermo Protocol provides the first internationally recognised definition of human trafficking:
Trafficking in persons shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.
