Protect Victims of Trafficking

937 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Cork STOP Sex Trafficking Campaign is calling on the Minister of Justice to amend the Criminal Justice (Trafficking and Sexual Offences) Bill 2006 to include: 1. A comprehensive legal response to the needs of victims of trafficking. 2. Sensitive, well-resourced and effective protection measures for child victims of trafficking, 3. A clear statement is required setting out the irrelevance of the victim\'s consent where any of the improper means specified in the definition of trafficking are used. The irrelevance of consent in all cases involving children must also be clearly stated. 4. Protection measures for witnesses and victims during legal proceedings including specifically provision for: physical protection, relocation, identity change and assistance in obtaining employment. 5. The establishment of a specialised unit or task force within An Garda Siochana with responsibility for coordinating responses to trafficking and providing training to specialised personnel. 6. A national coordinating body to monitor and coordinate agency responses to trafficking. The publication of the Bill provides an opportunity to establish, on a statutory basis, a coordinating body.

    Trafficking of women also happens within a country. Prostituted women are moved from place to place. Prostitution and trafficking are violence against women. Any law should state this.

    The women and children who are trafficked for the sex trade have an inherent GOD-given right to be fully protected from this brutal business.
