Trafficking is defined as the transportation of persons by means of threats or the use of force for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation includes prostitution of others, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. In particular, sex trafficking has become one of the most common types of trafficking in Indonesia and the areas surrounding, following the devastation of the recent tsunami. People are in need of money and have resorted to selling women and children into sexual slavery.
