Maximum punishment for human traffickers

GOVERNMENTS around the world should impose mandatory death sentences on human traffickers. They commit the worst kind of human rights abuse and degradation. This crime is many times worse than drug trafficking. At least drug traffickers don’t force their victims to buy or consume drugs.

We’ve all read how human traffickers are resorting to kidnapping and false advertisements to lure unsuspecting individuals into becoming “money machines”. When the victims refuse to comply or fail to deliver, they are tortured or sold to another scamming organisation – it’s just like the olden days slave trade. And just like slaves of old, some of these modern-day victims end up dead as the result of mistreatment.
