Strasbourg, 07.05.2013 – Norway has taken significant steps to help fight human trafficking in recent years, but a number of important challenges remain – including the need to set up a national system for identifying and assisting victims. These are among the main points of a report published today by the Council of Europe’s expert group on human trafficking (GRETA).

 

The report notes that there are around 150-200 potential victims of trafficking per year in Norway, mostly women from Nigeria, Romania and Lithuania who are trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation.
