CJI commences inspection on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

30/04/2018
Inspectors are about to commence an inspection of how the criminal justice system deals with modern slavery and human trafficking in Northern Ireland. Modern slavery is a term that covers the offences of trafficking and slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour. Its victims are among the most vulnerable people in society and can be hesitant to seek help due to fear of their traffickers.  Inspectors will meet with a range of justice and stakeholder organisations who work in this area.  The Terms of Reference for the Inspection are here.  Any organisations or individuals who are interested in contributing to this important work should contact the inspection team by email to [email protected].
