Doubt is enough to get help

Suspicion of human trafficking is enough to get help Access to the assistance provided by the victims of human trafficking is sufficient to suspect trafficking in human beings. It does not require a final court decision on trafficking in human beings. Assistance can be obtained even if the suspected human trafficking has taken place elsewhere than in Finland. The assistance system provides victims with accommodation, social and health services, legal assistance and security measures when needed. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the assistance to victims of human trafficking. To celebrate this, a celebration seminar will be held in Tampere on Tuesday.

human trafficking as a crime
According to Finnish law, trafficking in human beings can be regarded as equal to sexual exploitation, forced labor or any other form of deprivation of liberty, or the sale of organs for economic gain, such as the offense of mating.
It is essential for the character of human trafficking to be fulfilled that the victim of a crime has been misled or subjected to, for example, prostitution for the sake of dependent status or insecurity.
The victim is usually addicted to a criminal who maintains the addiction through illegal means, such as threats, violence or restrictions on liberty. Trafficking in human beings is a crime against the individual.
The Finnish Criminal Code entered into force on 1 August 2004.
The sentence for trafficking in human beings shall be a minimum of 4 months and a maximum of 6 years imprisonment. The scale of the trafficking in human beings is between 2 and 10 years in prison.
