Trafficker cash 'to help victims'

PUBLISHED November 15, 2004

Cash seized from people smugglers in the UK could be used to help victims rebuild their lives.

Solicitor General Harriet Harman is looking at diverting money from the public purse to help victims in their own countries.
UN figures suggest that 700,000 people are trafficked each year and forced into prostitution, with 1,400 coming to the UK.
