an Organisation whose Lawyer Dana Sussman is helping SR, has a tip sheet on Human Trafficking
Their Tips are as below:
Trafficking Indicatorshttp://www.safehorizon.org/images/uploa ... ipcard.pdf
Is the victim in possession of identification and travel documents; if not, who has control of the documents?She was having official passport and came as IBDA.
Was the victim coached on what to say to law enforcement and immigration officials?Dk or anyone was not present in the Interview. In fact her FIL was working in Embassy, such coaching seems to be impossibility. Hubby is also with another embassy. She was not satisfied with Hubby's salary in he beginning of her marriage and left home but returned only after she discovered that she was pregnant.
Was the victim recruited for one purpose and forced to engage in some other job?From all accounts she was engaged for the purpose she was recruited. In fact she asked permission to moonlight and was denied. Could have been a trap.
Is the victim’s salary being garnished to pay off a smuggling fee? (Paying off a smuggling fee alone is not considered trafficking.)There was no need to pay smuggling fee since she came on Official passport and Visa on Note Verbale.
Was the victim forced to perform sexual acts?Not even claimed by any account so far.
Does the victim have freedom of movement?
She was moving freely , going to market , beauty parlours and churches etc.
Has the victim or family been threatened with harm if the victim attempts to escape?No, in fact Indian legal system and US legal system were approached by the family.
Has the victim been threatened with deportation or law enforcement action?Not till she absconds/disappears and does not return to work.
Has the victim been harmed or deprived of food, water, sleep, medical care or other life necessities?Answer is no. In fact better facilities were available.
Can the victim freely contact friends or family?She was in touch with family through modern means of communication. It was provided by the Family of Dk with Ipad and Sim with a facebook account and yahoo email ID.
Is the victim a juvenile engaged in commercial sex?She is a mature adult and presumably not engaged in commercial sex
Is the victim allowed to socialize or attend religious services? She was reportedly attending Church.
These are the probable answers , by all accounts in the media, and Safe Horizons Lawyer concludes that SR is a victim of Human trafficking
