"The victims of human trafficking have virtually nobody to speak for them, no means of justice, outside of government intervention -- but even that is uncertain, according to a new report. An 18-month study by Scotland’s Equality and Human Rights Commission has found that more and more, trafficked humans are being treated as criminal aliens by authorities, who see their lack of citizenship paperwork as a breach of law rather than a symptom of a greater problem."
