The Vanishing Sex Slaves

Inquiry fails to find single trafficker who forced anybody into prostitution | UK news | The Guardian
The UK's biggest ever investigation of sex trafficking failed to find a single person who had forced anybody into prostitution in spite of hundreds of raids on sex workers in a six-month campaign by government departments, specialist agencies and every police force in the country.

The failure has been disclosed by a Guardian investigation which also suggests that the scale of and nature of sex trafficking into the UK has been exaggerated by politicians and media.

Current and former ministers have claimed that thousands of women have been imported into the UK and forced to work as sex slaves, but most of these statements were either based on distortions of quoted sources or fabrications without any source at all.
Goodness, who would have thought the government and media were such a bunch of useless, lying bastards?

Someone better tell the Swedes, who're promoting their Stockholm Programme, one of whose major aims is to prevent people trafficking.

Via Anticant's Arena.
