Trafficking convictions in Scotland during 2008

2 posts in this topic

Data supplied by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service indicates that to date, there has been one case identified where a person has been proceeded against in relation to sex trafficking offences under Section 22 of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2003 but no convictions. Most cases related to sex trafficking have been prosecuted as immigration or prostitution offences.

A 2008 analysis of prosecutions in relation to sex trafficking cases uncovered as a result of the national police led Operation Pentameter 2 (which ran from October 2007 to March 2008) indicated that 18 people had been convicted of offences including trading in prostitution; attempting to pervert the course of justice and offences under the Identity Cards Act 2006 and the Immigration Act 1971 and that sentences ranging from imprisonment to financial penalties have been imposed. There were no prosecutions for trafficking offences due to insufficient evidence.
