In June 2016, the European Court of Human Rights recalled Romanian positive obligations under both Articles 3 and 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights “to apply effectively a criminal-law system punishing all forms of rape and sexual abuse against children.”

From August 2015 to May 2016, the Child Hotline Association and the National Agency against Trafficking in Persons launched a project called “Increasing the capacity of the education system in the field of prevention of trafficking in human beings”.

In 2015, Romanian public officials and NGOs identified 316 child victims of trafficking, of which 54% were trafficked for sexual purposes.

Between 2011 and 2014, 78% of the children victims of trafficking in Romania were trafficked internally. [?]
