Sex Trafficking 'is Widespread'

4 posts in this topic

I just happen to have finished reading a history about the non existent WMD in Iraq when I came across this article which I had somehow missed (not being a Guardian reader):

Inquiry fails to find single trafficker who forced anybody into prostitution

I note that 'The end result was that, after raiding 822 brothels, flats and massage parlours all over the UK, Pentameter finally convicted of trafficking a grand total of only 15 men and women.....

...But, in reality, Pentameter used a very different definition, from the UK's 2003 Sexual Offences Act, which makes it an offence to transport a man or woman into prostitution even if this involves assisting a willing sex worker.'

Whilst trafficking is a dreadful crime, I am glad to find that this seems to bear out my own observations that it occurs only rarely and represents a tiny proportion of the UK sex industry.

This is undoubtedly what has discredited the Poppy Project.....

I don't see the connection?

I agree that raiding 800 brothels doesn't quite compare with invading a sovereign nation, but we were assured there was evidence to justify both and the facts didn't bear it out...
