Pow­ers come into force

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

New pow­ers to tackle hu­man traf­fick­ing and ex­ploita­tion have come into ef­fect.

From to­day, courts will be able to im­pose traf­fick­ing and ex­ploita­tion pre­ven­tion or­ders on peo­ple con­victed of traf­fick­ing and ex­ploita­tion of­fences.

The or­ders can im­pose a range of re­stric­tions such as pre­vent­ing of­fend­ers from em­ploy­ing staff, work­ing with chil­dren or trav­el­ling to cer­tain coun­tries.

Breach­ing an or­der will be a crim­i­nal of­fence.
