    Default How to stop trafficking?

    I for one am sad to see that the new laws coming in will make it illegal to purchase escort services. But I am happy that maybe they will help out girls who have been trafficked into country. I realise that we can never really know who has been a victim of this?? What does everyone think?

    What is your personal definition of trafficking?
    2014 in Northern Ireland:

    Number of reported attacks on sex workers 70

    Number of sex trafficking cases ZERO

    Yes I read this before, doesn't sound like Ruhama will help at all.

    No they won't, but my original question was what YOU personally regard trafficking to be.

    where the ladies are not in conrol of who they see, prices, hours, and were enticed over to Ireland with the opportunity of different work, and consequently forced into the industry.

    Ah, you mean coercion. In the eyes of the law, trafficking is just transporting someone from one place to another for the purpose of prostitution, whether they are in control or not. Like, if I was nice and bought a plane ticket for an escort, I would be a trafficker, even if I had no other involvement in what she does. This is the misconception that the Irish government and the likes of Ruhama (the 'rescue agency') are trying to reinforce.

    It's like calling someone who gives their friend a joint for a couple of euros a 'drug baron'.

    right, that would be the word for it. I mean if a girl has not much English, and another girl answers her calls and is her boss, then what would you consider this?
