Increased Slave Trade in Costa Rica

(Prensa Latina) Costa Rican authorities detected 50 cases of slavery and sexual and work exploitation of foreigners who are brought here by networks of person traffic.

According to the National Coalition Against Illegal Traffic of Migrants and traffic of Persons, the number of victims represents 60 percent more than in the same period of 2009 when only 30 were found.

The institution that operates in coordination with the Ministerio de Saud (Public Health Ministry) pointed out that all cases discovered in 2010 are of foreigner trade, especially from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Asian nations.

One of the most recent findings occurred in April 10 when national authorities broke up an international network of persons trade involved in recruiting men from China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Philippines, and Vietnam.

This time combined personnel from the Fuera Pública, Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ) and Direccion General de Migración (immigration service), made raids in the port city of Puntarena and detained 36 alleged victims of the illegal network.

International Organizations consider the trade of persons as the third most lucrative worldwide.

This criminal activity victimizes between four and 27 million persons around the world; 80 percent are women and children.
