Oaxaca, Mexico México.- As a country of origin, transit, and destination country for human trafficking, with the purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor, the Congress of Oaxaca drove during his amendments to the Penal Code of the State to establish this crime as serious, plus it within their legislative agenda is an initiative of Law to Combat, Prevent and Punish this phenomenon.

On the subject, the Permanent Council ushered a warrant sent by the Chamber of Deputies of the Congress by asking local congresses that have not done so, issued a rule on the matter or possibly harmonize their framework criminal law in accordance with the Federal Law to Prevent and Punish Trafficking in Persons.

congresopermanente2 In the case of Oaxaca, in November 2008, the LX Legislature headed as president of the Great Commission Deputy Herminio Cuevas Chavez approved amendments and additions aa several articles of the Criminal Code which penalties and sanctions were also raised both in this as in the corruption of minors.

After this modification, recognized for its importance nationally set from one to twelve years in prison, depending on the degree of participation, to induce, force, promote, implement or obtain economic benefit, corruption of minors its various forms.

Also in the Standing Committee on Administration of Justice is under study and analysis a Bill to Fight, Prevent and Punish Trafficking in Persons in the State of Oaxaca, in which aspects are presented as the creation of an interagency commission would aim to coordinate actions between different bodies, and to develop and implement a state program that includes public policies to protect, support and care for victims.

In the document sent by the Chamber of Deputies of the Congress stated that trafficking in persons is a crime more profitable worldwide with a presence in 155 countries and has grown significantly, which is why our country signed the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime on December 13, 2000 and signed the Palermo Protocol, emanated of that instrument.

The term trafficking is defined as "the recruitment, transportation, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for purposes of exploitation.

So the text proposed by the deputy Silvia Esther Perez Ceballos agreement point out that in Mexico the Law to Prevent and Punish Trafficking in Persons has been incorporated into our legislation inconsistently, thus causing difficult access to justice and, therefore defenseless victims.

Moreover, it is noted that Monica Salazar, coordinator of the Collective Against Trafficking in Mexico, notes that the offense contemplated is very general and broad, making it difficult to prosecutors when the preliminary inquiries check the media and the purposes for which people have been subjected to trafficking in any form.

The Office of High Commissioner in Mexico has said the state should articulate a comprehensive public policy. Besides the absence of specialized programs and policies, the lack of specialized profile and appointed officials are situations that the state must overcome
