A Message to Moldova|
Actually, the law in Israel has been changed recently - it's now illegal to to sell or bartar another human being. Yes, it wasn't illegal before - probably because no one thought anybody was going to do it.
This now gives the law enforcement agencies some teeth for handling the matter, and it should become a lot less common.
By the bye, I wrote a paper giving some background about prostitution (mostly call-girls) in Israel, with some reference to slavery, especially the advertising it recives on the internet. If you're interested in it - the bibliography lists some good sources on this under-studies issue - let me know and I'll e-mail you a copy.
