Rome, Italy, Oct 15, 2020 / 06:35 am (CNA).- Online exploitation of victims of human trafficking has increased amid the coronavirus pandemic, experts said at a U.S. Embassy to the Holy See event Oct. 14.

A high-ranking representative of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) argued that a failure to address human trafficking during the pandemic “will risk turning this very serious public health crisis into a human trafficking crisis.”

“The storm clouds are brewing on this and we can see it coming,” Valiant Richey said at the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See’s event, “Combatting Human Trafficking: Action in a Time of Crisis.”
