Trafficking of Women and Girls to Post-Conflict Bosnia
and Herzegovina for Forced Prostitution
I am trying to get two foreigners’
department officers fired. They were
from PSC [public security center]
Prijedor. A seventeen-year-old from
Romania had 500 clients, was beaten
and maltreated…. I met the girl
again, [and she refused to speak to
the local police inspector. She told us
that] the inspector [went] to the
brothel and stamped the passports
with the inspectors from the
foreigners’ department who used the
girls for free.

Hundreds of nightclubs dot the landscape throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Some contain trafficked women and girls trapped in debt bondage.
