Law No. 28 provides for the creation of various mechanisms, such as establishing the Higher Committee to Combat Human Trafficking, to combat and limit human trafficking through efforts such as providing for fines and prison terms for trafficking offences. Although it has helped prosecutors in terms of defining crimes as human trafficking and limited the ability of perpetrators to escape punishment, the law does not prohibit all forms of human trafficking, failing to address child prostitution and it stipulating an act has to involve a financial transaction in order to constitute human trafficking.
