Support for survivors in trials against sex traffickers

A small number of girls survive their time in a brother and want to testify against sex traffickers at trial.  pro filia helps to finance their efforts, paying for legal advice, as well as accommodation and travel for a girl and her escort.
For instance: in January 2010 a sex trafficker was tried in Mumbai, with a victim who had returned to Nepal invited to testify against him. pro filia covered the cost of her air travel, as well as that of a MAITI member who accompanied her to trial.  The trafficker was sentenced to three years jail and maid to pay the girl damages of about 800 Euro.
