One of the major problems of the last decade, at a national and international level, is the trafficking in human beings, which is often linked to the illegal immigration and constantly growing. Trafficking in human beings is a serious crime which harms the human rights, having deep economic and social consequences , due to the obscurity, mobility and aims of this phenomenon.
