UK’s former anti-slavery commissioner Kevin Hyland, OBE, has been in Austral-Asia in July, meeting political and business leaders and discussing the crime of Human Trafficking and Exploitation.
Currently, despite being illegal worldwide, 40-45 million people live in slavery, one quarter of whom are children. Two thirds of modern slaves are held in the Austral-Asia region, the largest number of slaves the world has ever seen.
A panel of experts got together recently in New South Wales Parliament House, Australia, to discuss modern slavery, forced slavery and human trafficking.
