New Zealand a source of underage girls for the sex trade

New Zealand is a source of underage girls for the sex trade and a destination for foreign workers subjected to forced labour: The U.S. State Department

The report calls the sex trafficking in New Zealand and the country’s use of forced labour as 21st century slavery.

“A small number of girls and boys, often of Maori or Pacific Island descent, are trafficked domestically to engage in street prostitution while some are victims of gang-controlled trafficking rings.”

New Zealand does not have effective anti-trafficking laws and does not criminalise all forms of forced labour, the State Department report says.

Women from China and South East Asia “may be recruited from their home countries by labor agents for the purpose of prostitution and may be at risk of coercive practices,” says the report.

“Although slavery is prohibited, its definition only covers situations of debt bondage and serfdom; thus, this prohibition does not cover forced labor obtained by means other than debt, law, custom, or agreement that prohibits a person from leaving employment.”
