MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy head of the department for combating organized crime under the Russian Interior Ministry Tatyana Azhakina said 50 human trafficking cases were opened this year, a two-times decrease from 2010.
"If we talk figures, 58 cases over human trafficking were opened in 2008, 94 in 2009, 103 in 2010 and 48 in the first 11 months of this year," Azhakina told at an international conference on combating human trafficking under the aegis of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization on Tuesday.
Police exposed some 3,000 related crimes this year, as in 2010. These include abductions and forcing into sexual acts, the Interior Ministry representative said.
