06/02/2009Increase in human trafficking in Netherlands

Latest figures show more women, especially from Hungary and China, falling prey to human traffickers.

THE NETHERLANDS – Human trafficking in the Netherlands is on the rise, according to figures obtained from the National Centre against Human Trafficking.

Dutch newspaper Trouw reports there were 809 registered victims of human trafficking last year, up from 716 in 2007. 

The figures show a substantial increase in the number of victims from Hungary and China. Some 763 were women and at least 60 percent of them were forced to work in the sex industry.

According to the report, the increase in number of victims were from Hungary - from 12 in 2007 to 43 last year - and could point to a shift of the smuggling networks in Eastern Europe. All victims from Hungary were female and were forced into prostitution. 

The increase in the number of Chinese victims was probably the result of rumours about a general pardon for illegal immigrants in connection with the Olympic Games in Beijing.
