Concerns human trafficking will increase ahead of 2010

As published by Eye Witness News

The Salvation Army has called for legislation on human trafficking to be passed as soon as possible.

The civil society NGO says there are concerns human trafficking will increase ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

It says traffickers are known to target international sporting events.

It is believed criminals exploit the situation by making young girls and women available for sexual favours.

“It is the law against human trafficking, it contains good background, good definitions, it contains different types of human trafficking and it needs to be passed,” said The Salvation Army’s Marieke Venter.
