How many people have you served or plan to serve?
The number of victims who apply for legal assistance to Center for Human Rights and Development /CHRD/ has been increasing since 2005 to the present. Therefore, CHRD has opened a registration book of victims, to record each case. Also CHRD working partnership with legal organizations on victim protection and if need we are provides emergency assistance and contacting the relevant organizations in destination countries.
Approximately, 80 people have been served by our legal assistance and advice since 2005. Here are some cases of women and girls served by our organization. For example:
CHRD worked with the Central Intelligence Agency of Mongolia to bring home a girl who had been forced into prostitution in China. On March 2007, she was deceived with the false promise to work in a restaurant in the Baganuur area in Mongolia with a high salary, but she was sent to China. We covered all cost of officials of the Central Intelligence Agency to return the girl from China. She could not claim physical and psychological damages by a criminal claim so far because police have not been investigating her case, because the alleged perpetrator is abroad.
CHRD worked as advocate for a victim who was deceived by false advertising which promised work with high salary in South Korea, but she was forced into prostitution after she arrived there and worked from 2007 to 2008. Criminal paid all damages of the victim.
Currently, we are working as advocate for a case in which four girls performed forced prostitution in Malaysia, due to false advertising that promised a high salary in the sock industry in Malaysia. This case is currently at an investigation level.
Activities addressed to raising public awareness addressed can prevent many people from this crime. Identify victims and record hidden cases in border places.
