In Australia, offences relating to trafficking in persons first came into existence in the late 1990s.  Initially, these offences only concerned slavery and similar practices until broader offences applicable to all forms of trafficking in persons were added in 2005 and again in 2013.  This website outlines the evolution of the offences relating to trafficking in Australia, sets out relevant provisions under the Criminal Code (Cth), and explores prosecution and sentencing under the current laws.
