Human trafficking in PNG exposed by new report

Human trafficking in PNG exposed by new report

Updated 11 April 2013, 16:47 AEST

The first report on the trafficking of people in Papua New Guinea has found adults and children are being pushed into sexual exploitation, forced labour and domestic servitude.

The joint report from the International Organisation for Migration and the PNG Department of Justice also found the logging industry was the sector that most exposes people to the risk of trafficking.

There's no legislation criminalizing people smuggling and trafficking in PNG and prior to the release of this report, very little has been known about just how extensive it is.

Giuseppe Crocetti is Chief of Mission for the International Office of Migration in PNG.
