Night and Day published recently a case of "Elisabeth", a menneskehandelsoffer was informant for the police before it was decided that she will stay in Norway. Still living with her family with threats from the criminal networks she was taken advantage of, but the UNE believes she does not have needs for international protection.
44 menneskehandelssaker which was reviewed in 2017, was 43 dismissed. Mildrid Mikkelsen, head of the ROSA-project, believes apolitiet downgrades menneskehandelssaker for drug offences. Lightup has been in contact with a menneskehandelsoffer who have similar experiences with the police. She chose to review their bakpersoner after solicitation from the police, and put thus themselves in great danger. During interrogation it was revealed that she was forced to sell sex, but also drugs. Menneskehandeldelen were dismissed, but she was, however, charged with sale of narcotics, despite the fact that this was under duress.I don't understand why we should have a positive focus on the prostitution Debate
This we believe is to take advantage of a person's vulnerable situation, and an example on the police's skewed priorities. One who has experienced abuse, should not have to experience what she has said in confidence should be held against her in the aftermath.
the Result of the fact that so few menneskehandelssaker ends in a judgment, is that there is a reduction in the number of victims applying for refleksjonsperiode (limited residence permit) , while fewer want to review. In 2015 searched 62 on reflection, in 2018 only 15 people. Then it should be put into measures that encourage you to apply for a reflection, then this will help the victims to break out of the environment.
It is a dangerous trend of victims of human trafficking lose the essential trust of the police. In order to prevent further exploitation do victims get a worthy treatment in the Uk and be given opportunities to get out of the situation they are in.- This is criminal activity!
