Number Of Children Forced Into Slavery Hits All-Time High

While the resurgence of human trafficking in war-torn Libya in recent years has occupied the headlines, trafficking in the UK has also climbed to an all-time high, according to the National Crime Agency.

Statistics released by the NCA show the number of potential victims of slavery has increased by 35% to 5,145 since 2016 - the highest since records began in 2009. And it's likely that number will only continue to climb, per RT.

The NCA said most victims are being used for sex or as drug mules by "county lines" groups, which use vulnerable children as couriers to transfer drugs from the city to rural areas.

British nationals comprised the largest group, followed by people from Albania and Vietnam. UK children accounted for 819 referrals, while 777 were Albanians, and 739 were Vietnamese.

Trafficking

Liam Vernon, a senior manager in the NCA’s modern slavery and human trafficking unit, said the figure is "shocking." "The reality is that there isn’t a region in the UK that isn’t affected." "The number is shocking and our assessment is that this is an underreported crime."

Nearly half of the referrals were linked to labor exploitation, while other cases were connected to sexual exploitation (1,744) and domestic servitude (488). The NCA said the increase in referrals was due to a "greater awareness" of the problem, but warned that figures "almost certainly represent an underestimate of the true scale" of the problem in the UK. Will Kerr, director of the NCA, said the rising phenomenon was a "particular concern."

"We are now dealing with an evolving threat," he said.

"The criminals involved in these types of exploitation are going into online spaces, particularly adult services website, to enable their criminality."

Other common countries of origin include China, Nigeria, Romania, Sudan, Eritrea, India, Poland and Pakistan; but 116 different nationalities are known to have been affected.

Victoria Atkins, Home Office minister for crime, safeguarding and vulnerability, said the figures showed that more potential victims were being "identified and protected" because of an "improved understanding of modern slavery."

And  here we are obsessed with Stormy Daniels.

Have in laws from Philippines, many abused as Filipino Overseas Workers, but I am sure it is worse with kids. Have been to orphanage in Cebu, and the kids there look as rough as anywhere compared to other places I seen: Shanty towns north of Capetown, Varanessi India, Nepal. Infants literraly abandoned on the street and will not luve to see another sunrise. Life is not fair.

Fuckin A Dead Fred!!

So many people have let this Clinton connected child sex trafficker slide back into a position of power in Idaho overseeing the "Orange Alert" system.

Now sitting back in her cushy gumint job she oversees the warning system for "Child Abuse and Ttrafficking".  

For those who do not know, she was caught at the border of the Dom Rep trying to smuggle out 33 children, who she claimed were orphans.  They were not.  She was smuggling them out for sex trafficking, to sell to here elite friends.  

Bill the rapist Clinton promptly interceded on her behalf as he was sitting on the UN pedophole board of hig commisioners to lobby for a sentence of less than life.  Which would have been the case.

She got off with a suspended sentence.

This cunt is now living of the US Dime in Idaho.  Laura Silsby.

The Flesh Trade. Because... what?  Men are such great guys, and "boys will be boys"?

No, it was not some BS "Immaculate Conception" crap. Although that would romanticize the horrific event, by artificially elevating it from a real human hell to a fantasy human heaven.

p.s. Now go ahead and fvcking junk me, for exposing the truth and depravity of human nature.

 Well into my  early 50's and many years, decades of investment protocol above you. Started my first business @ 16.

 Impress me.  Do you even have a personal book to trade?

  My Father is Mid seventies, and knows nothing about numbers.

   I send screen shots of my trades regularly. What do you offer?

  Are you Involved in your community? Are you donating money to help people to get to their jobs, and take care of their families?

  I'm a Libertarian, and nothing more.  God blessed me with a beautiful mind to help others, but also use some common sense.

  I'm a bit conservative, like fast cars , and flying airplanes.

Slavery? It's OK with the university students. They have the bravery to challenge a 150 year old statue that can't reach out to slap their ignorant, arrogant faces, but just shut their cowardly mouth when it comes to what's happening all around them. What say you, you cowardly communists? You are tying your own hangman's noose with your silence.
