Developed Countries share the blame for Human Trafficking, say Sr. Eugenia Bonetti



One of the leading fighters against human trafficking in Europe, Consolata Missionary Sister, Eugenia Bonetti, has said developed countries should be blamed for taking part in human trafficking especially that aimed at sexual exploitation. She made the comment on Monday in the Italian city of Torino on the occasion of the World Day for the elimination of Violence against Women. She heads an association known as Slaves No More which assists trafficked women from Africa and Eastern Europe. She described human trafficking as a form of violence and said majority of its victims are women with a poor background, who are taken to rich nations and put on the market, mostly to serve as prostitutes. She appealed to developed countries to understand that the human body is sacred and deserving of respect.
