Action against slave owners

Slave owners simply cannot be treated as employers of children who must be persuaded to cooperate with programmes of action. They are guilty of a crime. A policy of deterrence must be set up and the population informed of this policy. It could include the following elements:

• provision of sanctions strong enough to serve as both punishment and dissuasion;

• acceleration of judicial process in regard to bonded child labour; and

• punishment of all persons and institutions who actively participate in placing a child in bondage, not only the direct employer but equally the recruiters, escorts and surveyors.
