AP trafficking victims will be paid to testify

Many cases against traffickers in humans in Andhra Pradesh fall apart because the witnesses, usually the victims themselves, don’t want to testify. And it’s mainly because they do not have the money to appear at hearings.
So for the first time in the country, the Andhra police are heading a UN agency plan to compensate witnesses for coming to testify. They will get fare to and from their village to the court, said P Umapathi, inspector general of Women’s Protection Cell. “We also propose to give them daily minimum wages for the period that they are in court. They will get some money for child maintenance, too,” he said.
The court currently pays witnesses only Rs 8 for food. The money for the new initiative is coming from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The agency will give each of the five worst-hit districts Rs 5 lakh for a year. “While it will be funded by UNODC to start with, the state will eventually take over the programme,” said Umapathi.
He said the aim is to introduce the compensation scheme to all 23 districts. The payment scheme will also cover men who appear as witnesses.

Andhra has the highest number of cases of trafficking in women in the country. Records show that last year, 1,431 arrests were made in 458 cases under the Immoral Trafficking Act by the Andhra police across the country.
While the police are still compiling figures on those rescued, an official here said that in the last three months, they have had 300 rescues and a similar number of arrests. About a quarter of those saved are minors.
The police here say victims of trafficking often shun the courts because they are unsure about what the police are doing for them. In many case they want to go back to the brothel or the pimp who they were with, for reasons ranging from financial security to fear of being ostracized at home. But the main reason, said a senior Women’s Cell official, is that victims lose their daily wages when they come to court to testify. “They have to spend money on transport and food, as well as food for their children,” he said.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Theyre right on top of us, and Savous and Hyle are both on the surface. His face was devoid of its former markings, the skin smooth and black and unblemished. To a raedjour, that could be as effective as a douse of icy cold water. He raised one eyebrow. His hands were comforting weights on her shoulders, helping her to ground. Be proud of what you just accomplished. Suddenly shy, Eyrhaen stared at the crimson and midnight pattern in the rug. As She had told her to do, Eyrhaen gave herself into pleasuring Hyle. They had always done all they could for her, even when she was difficult. She had that under tight control. Maybe shed broken that too. She froze when his hand closed around her arm just above her elbow. He heaved an overly done martyred sigh. They didnt seem to mind. Chuckling, Brevin slid arms around Tykirs chest. She put on her best devious grin. She could have enslaved the raedjour. They shared a chuckle. I wouldnt want to deny you. She nipped at his ear as he carried her through her bedroom door.

When Lanthan backed up a step, putting distance between them, something behind her heart twisted. He waited for Irin to stand, then did so himself, water sluicing off him. Is the casting of this spell anything like the one that changes women to raedjour? She recognized that particular position from prior matches and knew it wasnt one easily broken. Then she opened her eyes.
