3,000 children enslaved in Britain after being trafficked from Vietnam
The link between child trafficking and the UK’s domestic cannabis industry has been increasing, with Vietnamese children the main group at risk.
According to a 2014 report by the NGO AntiSlavery International, almost all potential victims of trafficking linked to cannabis are Vietnamese, and more than 80% are children. Vietnamese gangs have been instrumental in the proportion of domestically grown cannabis in Britain rising from 15% in 2005 to about 90% now.
