UN/NATO Sex Slave Rings Update

Nato force 'feeds Kosovo sex trade'

London Guardian | May 7 2004

Western troops, policemen, and civilians are largely to blame for the rapid growth of the sex slavery industry in Kosovo over the past five years, a mushrooming trade in which hundreds of women, many of them under-age girls, are tortured, raped, abused and then criminalised, Amnesty International said yesterday.

In a report on the rapid growth of sex-trafficking and forced prostitution rackets since Nato troops and UN administrators took over the Balkan province in 1999, Amnesty said Nato soldiers, UN police, and western aid workers operated with near impunity in exploiting the victims of the sex traffickers.

As a result of the influx of thousands of Nato-led peacekeepers, "Kosovo soon became a major destination country for women trafficked into forced prostitution. A small-scale local market for prostitution was transformed into a large-scale industry based on trafficking, predominantly run by criminal networks."

The international presence in Kosovo continues to generate 80% of the income for the pimps, brothel-owners, and mafiosi who abduct local girls or traffic women mainly from Moldova, Romania, Ukraine, and Russia to Kosovo via Serbia, the report said, although the international "client base" for the sex trade has fallen to 20% last year from 80% four years ago.

Up to 2,000 women are estimated to have been coerced into sex slavery in Kosovo, which had seen "an unprecedented escalation in trafficking" in recent years. The number of premises in Kosovo listed by a special UN police unit as being involved in the rackets has swollen from 18 in 1999 to 200 this year.

A few weeks ago the UN's department of peacekeeping in New York acknowledged that "peacekeepers have come to be seen as part of the problem in trafficking rather than the solution".

The sex slavery in Kosovo parallels similar phenomena next door in Bosnia, where the arrival of thousands of Nato peacekeepers in 1995 fuelled a thriving forced prostitution industry.

International personnel in Kosovo enjoy immunity from prosecution unless this is waived by the UN in New York for UN employees or by national military chiefs for Nato-led troops.

One police officer last year and another the year before had their immunity waived, enabling criminal prosecutions.

"Amnesty International has been unable to find any evidence of any criminal proceedings related to trafficking against any military personnel in their home countries," the 80-page report said.

The report said that US, French, German and Italian soldiers were known to have been involved in the rackets.

Criticism of the international troops in Kosovo follows a recent broader indictment of the Kosovo mission by the International Crisis Group thinktank, which called for the mission to be overhauled.

Women were bought and sold for up to £2,000 and then kept in appalling conditions as slaves by their "owners", Amnesty said. They were routinely raped "as a means of control and coercion", beaten, held at gunpoint, robbed, and kept in darkened rooms unable to go out.

Apart from women trafficked into Kosovo, there is a worsening problem with girls abducted locally. A Kosovo support group working with victims reported that a third of these locals were under 14, and 80% were under 18.

The UN admission in March that its peacekeepers were part of the problem was welcome, said Amnesty.

UN police 'propping up' Kosovo sex trade
United Nations police and Nato peacekeepers are propping up the illegal sex trade in Kosovo, Amnesty International has alleged. According to a new report, "members of the international community are estimated to constitute 20 per cent of the people using trafficked women and girls" and generate as much as 80 per cent of the trade's income.

NATO SEX SLAVES
Alliance soldiers accused of preying on child hookers in rubble of war-tornKosovo
NATO peacekeeping troops were accused yesterday of callously exploiting child sex slaves in Kosovo. Girls as young as 11 are being sold into prostitution in the former war zone for as little as £34 each. Human rights campaigners say NATO troops' demand for sex has sent the vice trade spiralling out of control in the former Yugoslav province. And they claim that some soldiers have even been involved in trafficking women and girls.
The victims are beaten, raped and forced into sex with huge numbers of men. One woman claims to have had 2700 clients in less than a year.

Amnesty damns UN, NATO over sexual slavery of women in Kosovo
Amnesty International, in a shocking report, accused the international community of inaction or even complicity as women are trafficked into sexual slavery in Kosovo. In a 56-page report, the human rights group said 20 percent of clients at Kosovo brothels staffed by trafficked women were members of the Serbian province's NATO peacekeeping force (KFOR) or UN administration (UNMIK).

Kosovo UN troops 'fuel sex trade'
The presence of peacekeepers in Kosovo is fuelling the sexual exploitation of women and encouraging trafficking, according to Amnesty International. It claims UN and Nato troops in the region are using the trafficked women and girls for sex and some have been involved in trafficking itself. Amnesty says girls as young as 11 from eastern European countries are being sold into the sex slavery.
