First report on human trafficking in Hungary

29 May 2015

A new report on human trafficking in Hungary calls on national authorities to pay more attention to the problem of internal trafficking.

The recommendation comes from the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA), which monitors Hungary’s compliance with its obligations under the organisation’s anti-trafficking treaty.

Its report praises the government’s national strategy against anti-human slavery and awareness campaigns but experts note insufficient action to detect possible victims of human trafficking amongst asylum seekers and irregular migrants.

In addition to focussing on the "growing phenomenon" of internal trafficking, the government is urged to identify and support child victims and ensure adequate compensation of victims by perpetrators.

Experts also want national authorities to improve the effectiveness of investigations and prosecutions of trafficking cases, that would lead to more convictions and proportionate and dissuasive sanctions.
