So Heartbreaking! These Are 5 Worst Countries Which Committed Human Trafficking

Human trafficking that happens all over the world actually involves the use of force, fraud, or even coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Definitely every year, millions of men, women, and also children are involved in being trafficked worldwide. It can happen in any community and victims can be of any age, race, gender, or nationality.

As for the tactics, the cruel-hearted traffickers might use any type of violence, manipulation, or even false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to lure victims into trafficking situations. Language barriers, fear of their traffickers or even fear of law enforcement frequently keep all of the victims from seeking help, making human trafficking a hidden crime. According to researches, these are the 5 worst countries that committed human trafficking.

1) Russia

The U.S. Congress-approved sanctions against Russian banks and oil companies also target North Korean labor in Russia and elsewhere. According to the report, Russia recently expanded bilateral agreements with North Korea that allow for labor camps and “slave-like conditions” for workers within Russian borders. About 20,000 workers from North Korea are sent to Russia each year. The country has been rated Tier 3 since 2013.

2) China

China was downgraded to Tier 3 after three years on the Tier 2 Watch List. Chinese officials responded by calling the assessment “irresponsible”. The report cited gaps in state laws against human trafficking and also the ongoing of state-sponsored forced labor despite formal announcements that the practice had been stopped. Demographic challenges created by the country’s one-child policy have led Chinese men to find wives through sex trafficking.

3) Iran

Iran’s government “continued to punish trafficking victims for unlawful acts committed as a direct result of being subjected to human traffickings, such as adultery, prostitution, and illegal immigration”, some of which are punishable by death, according to the report. Migrants, particularly those from Afghanistan, are coerced into combat roles in Syria, and children as young as 3 years old work as street beggars under the threat of physical and sexual abuse.

4) Belarus

Forced and compulsory labor is used as punishment for various offenses in Belarus, including government criticism and failure of unemployed people to pay a fine. About 7,000 people suffering from alcoholism or drug dependencies are held in “medical labor centers” with an obligation to work, according to the report. The government has yet to approve a draft of the State Program on Countering Crime and Corruption, which addresses human trafficking. But it has made progress by repealing a law that bound state workers in the lumber industry to their jobs.

5) Venezuela

Venezuela fell to Tier 3 in 2014 after President Nicolas Maduro’s rise to authority in 2013. Sex trafficking and child sex tourism are common, particularly among women lured from poorer regions to tourism hubs. Officials reported an increase in sex trafficking in the informal mining sector, according to the report, but the government did not report any investigations into human trafficking or any protection efforts for victims.
