Young Brazilian Women Are a Favorite of European Sex Traffickers

Brazilian women – the majority between 18 and 30 years old – are among the prime victims of international sex traffic, according to the United Nations.

These are women who believe in the fantasy of a better life in Europe and allow themselves to be seduced by miraculous promises.

"Around 90% of the cases are Brazilian women destined for the sex industry in Europe," observed the coordinator of the Crime Prevention and Drug Supply Reduction Program, Reiner Pugs.

To fight this type of crime, Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva signed a decree yesterday, June 28, to institute the National Policy to Combat Human Trafficking.

The guidelines of the document establishing the National Policy to Combat Human Trafficking was discussed in the Office of the Attorney-General of the Republic (PGR), in Brazilian capital Brasí­lia.

Legislative members of the Joint Parliamentary Investigatory Commission on the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents took part in the debate.

The text is a joint effort of the Ministry of Justice, the Special Secretariat of Human Rights, and the Special Secretariat of Women’s Policies.

    Brazilians are pourning accross the US border, condering the dozen or so countries and thousands of miles that separate the two nations.

    One has to look at the “causes” that enable those to be trafficked.

    The miserably low minimum wage that exists in brazil as well as a lack of opportunity is what makes brazil a prime “area” for traffickers.
