New anti-human trafficking report on Poland

A new report reveals that Poland is making progress in tackling human trafficking but is not doing enough to stop labour exploitation

The Council of Europe’s anti-trafficking expert group (GRETA) welcomes the setting up of regional anti-trafficking teams, bringing together representatives of the authorities and civil society, and the appointment of anti-trafficking focal points at the Police, Border Guard and Prosecutor’s Office.

The report also notes that the number of persons trafficked to Poland for the purpose of forced labour has grown over the years, according to the report.

GRETA asks the Polish authorities to review arrangements for employment of third-country nationals, in order to prevent exploitative practices, and to strengthen inspections in sectors considered at risk of trafficking.
