National Awareness Raising

Human trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation refers to persons recruited, transported, transferred, harboured or received for slavery, forced or compulsory labour or services, servitude, forced criminality, sexual services or the removal of organs.

These workers suffer threats or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception and abuse of power. They find themselves in a position of vulnerability in which they are expected to give or receive payments or benefits under the control of another person.

Situations in which persons are forced to work for little or no wages for the profit of others under threat of punishment must be reported!
