>Dear collegues,
>We are currently working on a project on the combat of trafficking

>international level. As we also shortly mention other European
>countries' legislation (such as Sweden or Belgium) on the issue, we are
>interested in getting some information on the relevant Italian
>legislation, too.
>Would it be possible for you to send me just some basic information on
>relevant provisions of criminal law and alien law (especially, if there
>exists an explicit prohibition of trafficking in the penal code and if
>there is any witness protection available, such as the possibility to
>obtain a residence permit during/after procedures against the
>traffickers or to be covered by the national social insurance system)?
>Thank you very much in advance and best regards,

This is Marco Bufo of the Association On the Road, Italy.
In the new law about Immigration (Testo Unico sull'Immigrazione, D. Lgs.
286/98) there is article n. 18 which provides for a special residence permit
for victims of violence and exploitation both if they take the traffickers
to court and if they are not able to do it but want to undertake a social
assistance and integration programme carried out by Local Authorities or by
NGOs working in the field.

This Law is unique in Europe and it was approved and enforced also thanks to
the contribution of NGOs like On the Road, since a long time engaged in
social interventions in the specific field of trafficking of human beings
for sexual exploitation.

Wishing you good work,
Yours sincerely

Marco Bufo
