Organized Crime & Gangs

Iraq a hotbed of human trafficking

“The Heartland Alliance, a US organization that deals with human rights issues, has tracked 100 cases of human trafficking in Iraq during the past two years. Dyler added that the majority of the cases the organization has tracked involve human organ trafficking, female sex trafficking and child slavery. These acts are committed by gangs that organize begging and exploit foreign workers, through enslaving the majority of them and depriving them of their basic labor rights such as full wages and regular vacations. Moreover, Dyler clarified that the easiest cases to track are those involving exploitation of women for prostitution. Most victims of such forms of trafficking are originally from provinces in south and central Iraq.”
