Break the Links in the Chain of Abuse

Published onsdag 17 december 2008 kl 11.52

Everyone can help to stop the trade in sex slaves.

A report from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention says that people like taxi drivers, hotel workers and ferry crew all unknowingly act as links in the chains that allow the trade in people to function.

But it adds that if ordinary people are quick to report to the police suspicions of forced prostitution of immigrants then the fight against this will be a lot easier.

But the Crime Prevention Council warns that the signs of forced prostitution are a lot more subtle than people think.

Many women are lured by professional trafficers to come to Sweden from, for example, Eastern Europe, to seek a better life.

But they are soon locked into near-slavery by debt and other forms of control.
