Scandinavian Human Rights Lawyers complains to the UN Committee Against Torture

We represent Joy and her little son, Nathan. The Migration Board has decided to expel them despite the risk of being subjected to violence, re-trafficking and in worst case, death – by the criminal network that sold and exploited Joy earlier. Now we are complaining to the UN Committee Against Torture. The background is that Joy was exposed to human trafficking  in Greece together with several other girls in captivity and was used in prostitution under slave-like conditions for 17 months. She was exposed to massive trauma exposure and to both physical and psychological threats and violence. During this time, Joy got pregnant. During a raid against the brothel, Joy, who was pregnant in the fourth month, managed to flee to Sweden, where she gave birth to her child.
