ChristianPost- Iran’s government officials were involved in sex trafficking of women and girls, and some of them even forced girls into prostitution rings, a report by the State Department says. U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen says the report shows the Obama administration’s “irresponsibility” in striking a nuclear deal with Tehran.
“Iran is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor,” Trafficking in Persons Report 2015 says. “Organized groups reportedly subject Iranian women, boys, and girls to sex trafficking in Iran, as well as in the United Arab Emirates and Europe.”
Iran is among the six countries in the Middle East and North Africa that have been placed on the Tier 3 List, the highest level of concern. more
