FOUR TEENAGE GIRLS RESCUED FROM HUMAN TRAFFICKERS – There are some vile crimes in the world but human trafficking and child prostitution are unquestionably the most heinous.
Last week four teenage girls, bound for the United Kingdom, were rescued from human traffickers by Dutch police, in assistance with the Serious Organised Crimes Agency (SOCA) in the UK.
The four girls, whose nationalities are believed to be either Syrian or Iraqi, where rescued by Dutch police after they swooped on a camper-van in Holland. The Dutch police discovered the girls hidden in the back of the van as it headed towards Rotterdam to catch the ferry to Hull in the United Kingdom.
The arrest came as the Dutch police received a tip-off from SOCA and in the process arrested two men.
British police have also arrested one other man in the UK in connection with the trafficking of the teenagers.
On Saturday Ali Muhammed Raza, 38, appear in front of a judge at Hull Court charged with four counts of facilitating illegal entry.
Police are currently in the process of extraditing the three other conspirators, two Iraqi and one Turkish national over the crime.
British police have been monitoring the group for some time and it is believed that they are part of a well established and organised human-trafficking ring. It has not yet been determined what the girls fate would have been if they had not been rescued.
There is speculation that they may have been forced into underage prostitution or into pre-arranged marriages.
Meebal.com says… It’s time the United Kingdom took a much harder line with human traffickers; maybe it’s time to re-introduce public flogging and the death penalty.
There is strong evidence to suggest that the death penalty does not provide a deterrent however it clearly prevents those convicted and sentenced from ever being able to commit another crime.
What would have been the fate of these girls? Again it can only be speculated but with the rising crime of Asian gangs involved in underage prostitution in the UK it is not unreasonable to suspect that these poor girls may well have suffered such a fate.
We talk about humanity and being humane towards others however when the crime of human-trafficking takes place there is no evidence of humanity being exercised by the traffickers.
Like any crime it can be reduced but to do so takes a will of iron and the realisation that the current system and the penalties that are imposed simply have no measurable effect.
If you feel deep sympathy for these girls and thousands of those who are trafficked throughout the world then do something about it. Petition your local MP and demand that the laws are changed for whilst the death penalty may not be a deterrent it will ensure they are never able to make another human being suffer at their hands.
