LISTEN TO MR MIKE BOLHUIS’ INSIGHTFUL COMMENTS REGARDING THIS CONCERNING ISSUE HERE:




 

Kidnapping, abduction, and human trafficking are distinct but related terms that refer to different criminal activities involving the unlawful taking or movement of individuals.

 

KIDNAPPING:

  • Definition: Kidnapping involves the unlawful and intentional abduction or carrying away of a person against their will.

  • Intent: The primary motive behind the kidnapping is often to ransom, extort, harm, or terrorize the victim and the victim's loved ones.

  • Duration: Kidnapping can be temporary or prolonged, depending on the circumstances and the motive of the perpetrator.


ABDUCTION:

  • Definition: Abduction refers to the act of taking someone away by force or threat, without consent, against their will.

  • Intent: Abduction, like kidnapping, involves taking a person against their will. However, the term "abduction" is sometimes used in a broader sense and may not always imply malicious intent.

  • Context: Abduction can be used as a more general term that encompasses various situations, including parental abduction, where one parent takes a child without the consent of the other parent, or non-criminal scenarios.


HUMAN TRAFFICKING:

  • Definition: Human trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring, or receipt of persons employing threat, use of force, coercion, or deception for exploitation. Exploitation can include forced labour, sexual exploitation, or other forms of abuse.

  • Intent: The primary purpose of human trafficking is exploitation, and it is often driven by financial gain. Victims may be forced into labour, prostitution, or other forms of servitude.

  • Scope: Human trafficking is a broader term that encompasses various forms of exploitation, and it can involve both national and international movements of victims.


 

HUMAN TRAFFICKING:

Any person who delivers, recruits, transports, transfers, harbours, sells, exchanges, leases, or receives another person within or across the border of by means of:

  • Threat of harm

  • Threat or use of force or other form of coercion

  • The abuse of vulnerability

  • Fraud

  • Deception

  • Abduction/abuse of power for the purposes of exploiting that person in any form or manner is guilty of human trafficking.

  • Human trafficking does not only occur between countries but also in communities where traffickers offer disguised opportunities for employment and then they lure the victims into slavery, drug trafficking, sex work and child labour.

  • Children are mainly trafficked from poor rural areas to urban centres like Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

  • Children are often trafficked for child labour, sexual exploitation, commercial sex work, physical and mental abuse and detention.

  • South African trafficking rings exploit girls as young as 10 years old for sex work.

  • These are violations of children’s rights as set out in the Children's Act and Constitution – including their rights to dignity, freedom, and security.

  • This time of the year, during holidays, human trafficking is exceptionally rife, and traffickers are lurking in places around children - like shopping malls, restaurants, and online.

  • Malls are the perfect place for traffickers as this is also the typical place for children and young adults to hang out.

  • Unfortunately, most children are unsupervised as their parents are working, unable to afford responsible care and proper protection.

  • The internet is a perfect environment for traffickers to recruit children through social media and other forums.

  • It is estimated that child victims comprise about a third of all human trafficking victims, while children and women together accounts for about 71% of victims.


 

HOW PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN:

  • Beware of advertisements that seem to be too good to be true, especially job offers. 

  • These jobs are often for nanny or au pair positions.

  • Monitor your child’s behaviour, especially their use of cell phones.

  • Traffickers use technology to attract and groom their unsuspecting targets.

  • Stay vigilant and be aware of people loitering without a purpose.

  • Beware of instant “friends”.

  • Avoid travelling alone, at night or in deserted places.

  • Trust your instincts.


 

If you suspect that a person is a victim of human trafficking, you must report the matter to your local police station or through the national toll-free number 10111.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook.

Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information.

Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.
