In­side story on traf­fick­ing

Central Leader - - NEWS -

De­tec­tive Daniel Walker will share his per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences, strug­gles and tri­umphs in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dan­ger­ous un­der­world of hu­man traf­fick­ing next week.

Af­ter many years work­ing un­der­cover across the globe, Walker has be­come an ex­pert at in­fil­trat­ing sex traf­fick­ing rings, res­cu­ing hun­dreds of vic­tims and pros­e­cut­ing dozens of per­pe­tra­tors ( Cen­tral Leader, June 2013). He is now the di­rec­tor of his own anti-traf­fick­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion, NVader, which part­ners with TEAR Fund New Zealand.

Walker says hu­man traf­fick­ing is a grow­ing in­dus­try that makes traf­fick­ers a sub­stan­tial profit.

‘‘There are now more slaves than at any other time in hu­man his­tory, with the aver­age age of vic­tims only 12 years old.’’

See Daniel Walker on June 8 from 6.30pm at Green­lane Chris­tian Cen­tre, 17 Marewa Rd, Green­lane.
