Камелия Димитрова: 387 българи са станали жертви на трафик на хора от началото на 2019 г.

"387 Bulgarian citizens have become human trafficking victims in the first 9 months of 2019: 258 of them – with the purpose of debauchery, 56 – for forced labour and 51 – for the so-called baby harvesting”, said Kamelia Dimitrova, the secretary of the National commission fighting the human trafficking.

However, the number of human trafficking victims under age has decreased. But the problem in Bulgaria is getting bigger. In the last 7 years the sexual or labour exploitation of Bulgarians have increased three times. Meanwhile there are less lawsuits regarding this problem. Most of the human trafficking cases happen in Varna, Bourgas, Rousse, Blagoevgrad and Plovdiv.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is a crime against the personality and someone’s human rights, and it breaks all ethics and values. It is among of the most profitable crimes together with drug and weapon trafficking. Human trafficking consists of gathering, transportation, concealing using force or other form of compulsion with the idea of exploitation. There are quite different purposes of human trafficking: prostitution, forced labour, mendacity, pocket-picking, organs transplantation or baby harvesting. It mostly regards girls and grown-up women.
