A justice ministry bill to crack down on trafficking in humans, child pornography and other human rights abuses was tabled in Parliament on Thursday.
The bill modifies and adds to the criminal code, introducing penalties such as prison terms and fines for crimes such as trading in human beings, sexual exploitation of children, child pornography or the recruitment of minors with the intention of using them in armed conflict.
The last offence, in particular, carries a minimum prison sentence of 10 years and a fine ranging from 50,000-100,000 euros.
