[Special reportage part V] The exploitation of teen runaways

In Child Sex Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on November 14, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Sun-hwa, just fifteen years old, ran away from home because of domestic violence, but she faced another kind of violence once in the streets. She encountered some adults who recruit young girls with promises of high pay and others who paid to beat and abuse her.

The patriarch of the runaway family who forced Sun-hwa into prostitution was a man in his thirties. He claimed that he was a gangster who could protect her and help her get money. Sun-hwa sold her dignity, but never touched any money.

She wasn’t allowed to have any private life. “I never got any money, and I couldn’t go out, so I had no time to spend money.”
