Freedom of movement for victims of trafficking

Throughout the ASEAN region, victims of trafficking often find themselves in some form of detention. Immigration detention can also be the fate of identified victims of trafficking being returned home because other facilities are not available. Victims of trafficking can be detained for committing criminal acts that relate to their trafficking. This form of detention, which is the focus of this information note, raises serious questions around its legality, as well as its necessity.
