Badger Political Leaders to Create a Clear Law to Stop Human Trafficking in New Zealand

    1. Petition by

      TEAR Fund

With the Rugby World Cup being held in New Zealand this year, concern exists that it will attract traffickers to use New Zealand as a source destination. Currently our judicial system has the means to prosecute those who engage in trafficking into New Zealand, within New Zealand and from New Zealand but a Judge must creatively draw on various bits of legislation to do so and in most cases it is not named as trafficking. It is the same for providing proper protection and support to victims. Clarity needs to be provided to our legislation relating to human trafficking to properly provide a solid framework for legally dealing with the issue.

We need a clear piece of legislation that effectively defines and confronts all aspects of human trafficking. This must include expanding our definition of trafficking beyond that which takes place across international borders. It must also recognise internal trafficking.

Tell political leaders to properly address human trafficking in New Zealand and create a clear piece of legislation that confronts it in all its forms.

      Don't promote such garbage by allowing it on the streets. I've lived in New Zealand and it's appauling what you allow in daylight...let alone behind the scenes.

      Let's get this right and send a strong statement that trafficking has no place in New Zealand. Our law should reflect that.
