"Lord Chief Justice Judge said that human trafficking was a 'vile trade': overseas and domestic victims in the United Kingdom must be treated as victims of crime. Anti-Slavery International warn us that modern slavery in the UK is thriving, having a profound impact on society and on all areas of criminal and civil litigation. The Court of Appeal continues to criticise police, prosecutors and defence lawyers for failing to identify trafficking and slavery victims and act appropriately, leading to victims being wrongly convicted. [This book] provides the information required to ensure that legal practitioners and other professionals who deal directly or indirectly with those affected by modern slavery and trafficking have the information they need at their fingertips. These include criminal, immigration, commercial and civil lawyers as well as accountants who may encounter people through dealing with supply chains, contract and employment issues, those who work in law enforcement, the judiciary, academics and students. Key areas covered include: legal and policy framework on trafficking; determination of status as a trafficking victim; the national referral mechanism for victims of trafficking; age disputes in immigration and criminal proceedings; trafficking and slavery offences and defences for trafficking victims; criminal court process; human rights and international protection; the Modern Slavery Act of 2015; special measures in immigration and criminal proceedings; criminal appeals; police station representation; detention and bail in immigration and criminal proceedings; compensation, ethics and funding"-- Page  of cover.
