The Anti Trafficking Monitoring Group (ATMG) has published a report this week called ‘Class Acts? Examining modern slavery legislation across the UK.’ Paramjit Ahluwalia assisted the project writers, Chris Beddoe and Vicky Brotherton, on aspects of criminal law concerning the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The report considers the need for clarity, recording of offences and the difficulties stemming from the current statutory defence for victims of trafficking under section 45.
Paramjit Ahluwalia is a member of the award-winning Garden Court Chambers Crime Team. She has particular expertise in trafficking and modern day slavery cases and regularly represents the most vulnerable in society, including women, migrants, youths and individuals affected by mental health issues.
The ATMG report was launched earlier this week at our Anti-Slavery Conference, an event which brought together experts in the field to mark Anti-Slavery Day. The conference was jointly hosted by Garden Court Chambers, the Anti Trafficking Monitoring Group, the Human Trafficking Foundation and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
