President of Haiti: Enforce Haiti's new anti-trafficking law and punish those who enslave children
Haiti has the highest prevalence of child slavery in the world. The Haitian government and parliament responded to growing pressure and approved in June 2014 a new law that makes all forms of child slavery and human trafficking illegal and punishable by 10 to 15 years in prison. We applaud this step, but the law will not help a single child unless it is enforced.
We call on the Haitian President and his government to move swiftly to put Haiti's new anti-trafficking law into application and punish those who enslave Haiti's children.
