Scotland must do more in child trafficking fight

A coalition of anti-trafficking charities today (Thursday August 6) will launch a new campaign calling on the Scottish Government to do more to help trafficked and exploited children.

CARE for Scotland, ECPAT UK and Walk Free are joining forces to launch a wide reaching petition that will put pressure on the Scottish Government to improve the Scottish Government’s Human Trafficking and Exploitation Bill in regards to children.

The charities are calling on the Government to ensure an effective system of independent guardianship for all trafficked and separated children and to ensure children are not prosecuted for crimes they are forced to commit.
