Human Trafficking Booming in Eastern Europe, but Governments Dont Seem to Care

dont seem to get enough help from either Moldova or Transnistria.

Because of their long-running territorial dispute, there is a near-total lack of cooperation and partnerships at the official level in checking the scourge.

During 2006, the hotline in Tiraspol, capital of Pridnestrovie, (also known as Transdniestria) received 200 calls, mostly prevention cases, but also calls from victims of trafficking, from parents of trafficked persons, and so-called SOS calls, regarding supposed or ongoing cases of trafficking, according to Victor Lutenco, representative of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), a UN agency. .

In Moldova, the situation is much worse. Although formerly one of the most wealthy parts of the former Soviet Union, Moldova is today officially the poorest country in Europe. With nearly total unemployment, the registered daily income of 80% of the population is below a dollar per day. This fact can explain why desperate people sell their organs for money and sex trafficking is rampant.

According to a UNICEF survey, 90% of Moldovans aged between 18-29 would like to leave the country only 9% said they would like to live in Moldova. Freedom House says: "Some 800,000 inhabitants of Moldova have left the country to pursue a better life elsewhere, and the majority of the country's remaining population lives in poverty."

40% of Moldova's sex slaves are kids, and both the traffickers and the involved government officials know that children are highly sought after for the sex trade.

The sex trafficking in minors takes place with the assistance of government officials who make the major share of the income from the trade, it is alleged..

Most often, the victims are women and children headed to the Middle East and other European countries. They often become slaves forced into the sex trade.

ABC News cite reports that trafficking has reached epidemic proportions:
