In a report published today, the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) urges the Portuguese authorities to improve the identification and protection of child victims of trafficking.

GRETA’s second report on Portugal’s implementation of the Council of Europe convention on human trafficking welcomes the progress made in a number of areas since 2013. The legal framework has been strengthened, for example by amending the Criminal Code to explicitly criminalise human trafficking for the purpose of forced begging and the exploitation of criminal activities.
