Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking

Human trafficking (also known as people trafficking) offences take place with a view to exploiting vulnerable individuals (often women and children) for the purposes of the sex trade, forced labour or modern slavery, by facilitating their movement in or out of a country.

The Palermo Protocol gives the first internationally recognised definition of human trafficking as:

“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.”

Human Trafficking Defence throughout the UK

Human or people trafficking is a serious crime and comes with severe punishments, therefore anyone who finds themselves accused of such crimes will need an expert legal defence team

If you have been accused of human trafficking offences and are worried about the consequences, the solicitors at Farleys’ SCU (Special Casework Unit) are available to provide legal advice and support, 24 hours a day.

Farleys’ Special Casework Unit  was established over fifteen years ago in order to ensure that those accused of complex, specialist and serious criminal cases had access to solicitors with the necessary resources and experience, to provide the highest standard of representation.
