This submission supports the clarification of slavery and sexual servitude offences and the creation of stand-alone offences of forced labour, deceptive recruiting and forced marriage in the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth). The Bill is praised for strengthening Australia’s compliance with international law. Anti-Slavery Australia also uses this opportunity to reiterate the need for a compensation scheme for victims of trafficking, which is not addressed in the Bill.
