Dutch lawyer Hans Gaasbeek is calling on the justice ministry to make a priority of locating young people from abroad who have gone missing and have been forced to work as prostitutes in the Netherlands.

He says research shows that children are being smuggled into the country and vulnerable youngsters are disappearing from refugee centres in the Netherlands. Many of the young people are thought to have been press ganged into prostitution.

Mr Gaasbeek represents two Nigerian girls who have gone missing and are thought to be working as prostitutes. He blames the authorities for not having done enough to find the youngsters.
