Severe human trafficking according to Section § 258 of the Penal Code is covered by the duty to prevent. Signs of severe human trafficking include the potential victim being under 18 years old, the use of severe violence or coercion, or the action leading to significant gain. The duty is triggered when you become aware that the action will occur or believe it is most likely to happen.

Signs of human trafficking

All professional groups that, through their work, may come into contact with potential victims of human trafficking, have a responsibility to identify and assist. Human trafficking is not always easy to detect. We should become better at seeing.

  • Are people showing signs of fear or stress?
  • Is there inconsistency in the information they provide about themselves?
  • Do they lack trust in others?
  • Do they have infections, wounds, or injuries that may be caused by violence or abuse?
  • Do they lack control over their own passport or travel documents?
  • Do they have no or only partial access to their own income and live in undignified living conditions?
  • Are they always accompanied by others?

These are some characteristics that may warrant concern, prompting inquiries about their situation and well-being.
