DA calls for harsh sentences for human traffickers
4 September 2018
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is calling for the harshest jail sentence possible for the two undocumented foreign nationals who are responsible for forcing two young women into prostitution in Arcadia in Tshwane.
Both men were found guilty of human trafficking and forced prostitution while one of them was also found guilty of contravening the Immigration Act for marrying a South African woman while not living with her.
According to a newspaper article the two victims were forced to take drugs, held captive in a flat in Tshwane and only let out at night to work as prostitutes. They were forced to hand over all the money they made from prostitution to their captors.
This is yet another example of the ANC government’s failure to keep South Africans safe and to stamp out illegal immigration.
