111 people given jail sentences for human trafficking in Bulgaria in recent years

Sofia. 111 people have been given jail sentences for human trafficking in the recent years. For the first time there are so serious convictions in Bulgaria, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said at a press conference about a project named “Prevention of Trafficking in Persons from Ethnic Groups, with Focus on Roma minority in Bulgaria,” FOCUS News Agency reported.

 The minister gave an example with a human trafficking group which was sentenced to 10-13 years’ imprisonment in December last year.

 According to him the project aims at prevention.

 Bulgarian Roma are one of the most vulnerable groups in the society. That’s why local commissions will work in Roma-populated areas mainly. We want to raise public awareness and make sure children will not be caught in a human trafficking network for pick-pocketing, said the minister.
