Human Trafficking in Romania – level 2
Starting in 2008, a human trafficking gang began kidnapping people, including children, from public places in Romania. The gang made these people become slaves. Their masters treated them badly by feeding them only little food and possibly raping them.
Recently, police stopped this gang’s activity when they arrested 29 criminals and saved five of the victims. The police believe that there are more criminals and a total of 40 victims that they still need to find.
Difficult words: human trafficking (when criminals illegally trade or sell people), kidnap (take somebody away and hide them), rape (make a person have sex), victim (a person who had something bad happen to him or her).
