Human Trafficking in Finland

In 2011, authorities in Finland launched 25 cases related to human trafficking, a record high.

In previous years, an average of 10 cases of human trafficking were investigated within the country. Officials in Finland attribute the rise in cases due to increased police activity into the crime, rather than an actual increase in human trafficking activities.
