What should you do when you're with a WG whom you feel has been coerced and forced into sex?
What should he have done?
I like his line:
But would that attitude stop coercion?
I think a more proactive approach would be needed.
In many cases a punter hasnt the insight to know either about coercion which if caught with such a WG by the police could lead to you getting charged under a Strict Liability offence where your guilty and its for you to prove you didnt know which would be a very hard if not impossible thing to do. Your ignorance wont get you off. Fortunately there have been a very small number of arrests following this legislation. Any WG could be being Coerced, her partner might be coercing her and using the money she earns for himself.
With both coerced or trafficked against there will WGs if i suspected either i would leave and anoynmously call Crimestoppers for them to inform the police. I have then done all i can and its in the hands of the police.
There are also WGs willingly trafficked on Bonds where the deal is they agree to pay a certain amount back by working as a WG for their traffickers or associates. These people arrange their Visas which is something the government has said it will be greatly cutting down on from people outside the EU. They pay for their passage here, the catch is the Bond is far far more than the costs to get her here. She then works it off in the hope of getting a better life once its paid.
What happens though if she gets ill or decides she doesnt want to continue being a WG. Her traffickers and associates arent going to be too happy i wouldnt imagine, god knows what could then happen to her.
I am completely opposed to these Bonds even if she is willing, her free choice is zero or little. Obviously Bonding is illegal here.
Another form of trafficking is where a woman of say Asian descent is sent to an Asian community to work as a WG only within that community, she disappears into it with little chance of rescue.
With WGs on Bonds many wouldnt thank a punter for being rescued, they dont want to be as it will probably mean be deported back home into the hands of their traffickers owing them money. Again god knows what happens then.
