The prosecutor of human trafficking cases can anticipate the common defense arguments and prepare to present counter-arguments supported by corroborating evidence. 

The Warnath Group Practice Guide “Prosecutor Trial Preparation – Countering Common Defenses” explains the relationship between the elements of the crime of human trafficking as laid out in the UN Palermo Protocol and the common defenses.  This Practice Guide provides descriptions and examples of the three most common types of defenses and offers counter arguments and suggestions for types of corroborating evidence prosecutors should look for.

 

 

“Prosecutor Trial Preparation – Countering Common Defenses” is the third Practice Guide in the continuing Prosecutor Trial Preparation series designed to equip prosecutors around the world with actionable knowledge and skills to successfully try human trafficking cases.
