    "The report released Wednesday — prepared by Lawyers' Rights Watch Canada and the B.C. CEDAW Group — recommends Canada conduct a national inquiry on missing aboriginal women and girls, develop a national action plan, and implement policies to improve police and law enforcement practices to ensure pan-Canada co-operation.

    Gail Davidson of Lawyers' Rights Watch Canada said Canada's reputation has been sullied in the international community for not dealing with the issue.

    "Canada cannot sustain its reputation as a country that safeguards the rights of all unless our governments acknowledge these human rights violations and take concrete, immediate steps to correct them," Davidson said"

    "A Michigan man faces several charges after he allegedly lured a Canadian teen into prostitution.

    The 18-year old woman met the 31-year-old suspect, who lived in Victoria, B.C., at the time, through an online dating website last April".



    " More charges are pending, and anyone who may have been victimized by the suspect, also known as Dominic Broecker, is asked to call police.

    Ontario truckers asked to watch for human trafficking


    CBC News

    Posted: Feb 24, 2012 7:56 PM ET

    Last Updated: Feb 24, 2012 7:49 PM ET


    Ron Thompson said truck drivers are in a good position to help spot suspicious activity. (CBC)

    A new campaign targeting human trafficking is hitting Ontario highways, with the hopes that truckers and truck stop workers can help report suspicious activity.

    The TruckSTOP campaign is an initiative from the Ottawa volunteer group Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in humans, or PACT-Ottawa.

    The TruckSTOP information says truckers should watch for people who look like they are being controlled or watched, who are fearing for their safety, tired, hungry or showing signs of physical or emotional abuse and not in possession of identification or travel documents

    "Some victims were told to pretend to be homosexuals facing persecution in Hungary on their Canadian refugee claims. Others were told to say they are persecuted Roma.

    All were threatened, cut off from family, fed scraps and locked in a Hamilton basement.

    One of their tormentors, Attila Kolompar, 37, pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy to commit human trafficking, being part of a criminal organization, and welfare fraud."

    Human trafficking 'a national security issue,' Obama task force told
    By Hyun Soo Suh, CNN
    April 15, 2012

    Washington (CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and heads of various U.S. government departments made clear Thursday that preventing human trafficking is a priority of the Obama administration.
    The 27 million men, women and children victims of human trafficking are an "affront to our most fundamental values," Clinton said at the annual meeting at the White House of the President's Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.

    [...]

    Holder said the programs are showing results. "Our work has sent a clear and critical message: that, in this country and under this administration, human trafficking crimes will simply not be tolerated," he said.

    "I'm proud to report that, this past year, we charged nearly 120 defendants - a record number - in human trafficking cases. And, over the last three years, we've achieved significant increases in human trafficking prosecutions, including a rise of more than 30 percent in the number of forced labor and adult sex trafficking prosecutions."

    Sex traffickers prove harder to catch as they move online
    By Jazmine Ulloa
    AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF

    The sex industry has evolved in the past two decades, moving from the streets to computer screens, and authorities in Austin and across the state say their efforts to enforce the law and find and protect victims are hampered by the shift.

    [...]

    But the sex trade is no longer mostly girls hanging around dark city corners looking for business, experts said. It is a multibillion-dollar enterprise that has expanded to hundreds of thousands of women advertising — or being forced to advertise — their services on countless online classified ads, teen dating and social networking sites.

    [...]

    Detectives said it's often tough to distinguish early in an investigation between victims willingly involved in prostitution and those who have been forced into the business.

    "Sex trafficking victims are typically minors or vulnerable young adults who are coerced or fraudulently brought into the trade through mental or physical abuse," said Billy Sifuentes, human trafficking liaison for the Austin Police Department.

    Numbers on such cases are difficult to find because victims often do not come forward to authorities, and there is no uniform database to track such cases when they do. The Human Trafficking Reporting System, developed in 2007 under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Justice, counted 2,515 suspected incidents of human trafficking for investigations nationwide between January 2008 and June 2010 — about 80 percent of which involved commercial sex as opposed to forced labor.

    Justice Department: Record number of human-trafficking cases in 2011
    By Jerry Seper-The Washington Times
    March 15, 2012

    The Justice Department initiated more than 120 cases against human traffickers during 2011 — a record number — in what Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Thursday was a part of the department’s commitment to preventing human trafficking, bringing traffickers to justice and assisting their victims.

    Mr. Holder, speaking at a Washington meeting of President Obama's Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, said the commitment has “never been stronger — and our approach has never been more effective.”

    [...]

    n February 2011, the Justice Department began a Human Trafficking Enhanced Enforcement Initiative to take its countertrafficking enforcement efforts to a new level. As part of that effort, Mr. Holder announced the creation of the Anti-Trafficking Coordination Team Initiative, an interagency collaboration among the departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Labor aimed at streamlining federal criminal investigations and prosecutions of human-trafficking offenses.

    Six Phase I Pilot ACTeams have since been activated in Atlanta; El Paso, Texas; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles; Memphis, Tenn.; and Miami.
