WITH GUEST: Sergeant Craig Friesen - Anaheim, CA police department. 

There have been some issues regarding human trafficking cases and cases of kidnapping & rape and we need to discuss this. 

Many people have been putting down the statistics of human trafficking and simply downplaying this crime, actually saying we are embellishing the facts. 

When this subject was brought up, it opened some wounds and caused some unintended pain, of which I was unintentionally put in the middle of. 


Elements Of Human Trafficking 

On the basis of the definition given in the Trafficking in Persons Protocol, it is evident that trafficking in persons has three constituent elements;

The Act (What is done)

Recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons

The Means (How it is done)

Threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or vulnerability, or giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim

The Purpose (Why it is done)

For the purpose of exploitation, which includes exploiting the prostitution of others, sexual exploitation, forced labour, slavery or similar practices and the removal of organs.

To ascertain whether a particular circumstance constitutes trafficking in persons, consider the definition of trafficking in the Trafficking in Persons Protocol and the constituent elements of the offense, as defined by relevant domestic legislation.
