Thu 24 Oct 2019 Fully Booked Defending a possible victim of human trafficking
Location: The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1PL
The increasing prevalence of human trafficking, modern slavery and the exploitation of its victims, who are often used by traffickers to commit criminal offences for the traffickers’ benefit, requires that criminal justice professionals are aware of the need to recognise victims of human trafficking who are suspected of or charged with criminal offences. This may involve drug dealing offences utilising so-called ‘county lines’. International and domestic law requires that states have in place legal and practical mechanisms to prevent the criminalisation of trafficking victims. This seminar is intended to alert defending and prosecuting solicitors to the relevant law, to CPS and Law Society guidance, how to recognise when your client may be a victim of trafficking, and to the practical steps that should be taken to have this status officially recognised.
