Criminal Legislation

Act No. 40/2009 Coll., The Criminal Code, available in Czech on (http://www.zakonyprolidi.cz/cs/2009-40) regulates in its § 168 the crime of human trafficking. The facts of the crime were substantively changed by an amendment in 2014 (Act No. 141/2014 Coll.). The originally a three-party relationship (trader- exploiter - victim) was reduced to two-party relationship (trader is at the same time in the role of exploiter) in three forms of trafficking (service in armed forces, slavery or servitude and forced labour or other forms of exploitation).

§ 168

Act No. 45/2013 Coll., on Victims of Crime (available at: http://www.zakonyprolidi.cz/cs/2013-45), defines victims of human trafficking as particularly vulnerable victims, who are as such entitled to free provision of professional aid.

Act No. 141/1961 Coll, Criminal Procedure Code (http://www.zakonyprolidi.cz/cs/1961-141), covers the requisites and course of the criminal procedure. Taken from the view of trafficked persons, the possibility to be represented by a representative and other procedural rights, such as the right to inspect files, are important.
