    Europol functions as a centre of expertise for strategic and operational intelligence and as an information hub for criminal data concerning the most threatening OCGs active in the EU. Europol provides operational support to MS law enforcement authorities. The EU Strategy 2012-2016 outlined specific tools through which Europol can assist MS’ investigative activities and persecution of traffickers. These include the enhancing of the intelligence picture on criminal phenomena and the training of specific law enforcement units and experts.This latest report of Europol is descriptive and oriented towards explaining the current crime situation providing an overview of all relevant factors (OCGs, criminal markets, and geographical dimension): the definitions of human trafficking, the push-, pull and the facilitating factors, the modus operandi of the traffickers concerning sexual exploitation as well as labour exploitation, forced sham marriages and forced criminality.Key findings of the report:Trafficking in human beings (THB) in the EU is predominantly a European affair. 70% of the identified victims and suspects in the EU are EU nationals.Victims and suspects generally share nationality, ethnic ties and sometimes kinship links.Mobility and rotation of victims are key features within this criminal market. Austria is a crucial transit country, especially for victims originating from Central Eastern Europe. Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom are key entry points for non-EU victims.A vast majority of the criminal groups active in THB are capable of controlling the entire process of trafficking, from the recruitment of victims to the reinvestment of the criminal proceeds. While most traffickers are male, female suspects are also involved in low-ranking tasks. Nigerian criminal networks form an exception where women play a central role in the exploitation process.The typical structure of criminal groups engaged in THB consists of loose networks linked by kinship or ethnic ties.Criminal proceeds are primarily sent back to their country of origin.Human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation is the most reported form of THB in the EU. Most reported victims are female EU nationals from Central and Eastern Europe.Non-EU victims mainly originate from Albania, Brazil, China, Nigeria, and Vietnam.EU victims usually use genuine documents, while non-EU victims use forged or look-alike documents.Deception is commonly used to lure potential victims, including the lover boy method.Human trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation is increasingly being investigated. Most reported victims are male EU nationals originating from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic Estonia, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.The majority of non-EU victims come from countries bordering the EU (i.e. Albania, Moldova, Morocco, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine) and to a lesser extent from China, India, Iraq, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.The exploitation tends to take place in labour intensive and/or under-regulated industries such as the agricultural sector, the construction industry and hotel/restaurant/catering businesses.Trafficked workers use legitimate identification documents and often have legitimate permits which expire over time.Other forms of THB identified in the EU are for the purposes of forced begging, forced criminality and forced sham marriage. Traffickers involved in forced criminality (i.e.‘smash and grab’ theft, purse snatching, metal theft, pick pocketing and fraud, drug production and drug trafficking) and begging deliberately target vulnerable groups.Women have been forced to engage in marriages of convenience, in order to provide the legal right of stay to non-EU (third-country) nationals.

    Rapid innovations in information and communication technologies facilitate the trafficking in human beings (THB) by exposing a growing number of victims to traffickers. These traffickers use social networks and online classified sites to market, recruit, sell and exploit their victims. The internet has shifted the recruitment, advertising and selling process from the street to the digital domain.Online interaction creates both risks and opportunities for criminals, victims and law enforcement. Criminals and victims leave permanent traces, which facilitates identification, but not necessarily intervention. This gap between identification and intervention is becoming more difficult to overcome for law enforcement. This Intelligence Notification provides an overview of Europol’s knowledge on the role of the internet as a facilitator for THB.

    Europol’s Report on Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) Financial Business Model 2015 is now available online. This document has been prepared by experts at Europol and is oriented towards explaining the current crime situation, providing an overview of all relevant factors e.g. organised crime groups (OCGs), criminal markets, and geographical dimension.The main key findings detailed in the report show how OCGs involved in THB tend to work independently from other groups and launder their own criminal proceeds with little use of experts. These OCGs are mainly small and based on family and ethnic ties. The family cell is used to support trafficking operations and money laundering activities. There are no new methods of money laundering specific to THB groups, but the exploitation of innovative technologies is increasing. Financial institutions, money service businesses and other types of financial providers are at most risk of being exploited by the money laundering activities of OCGs.

    Intelligence Notification 16/2014 about child trafficking for exploitations in forced criminal activities and forced begging. Conclusion: Child victims of trafficking in human beings are not easily identified.    Types of exploitation other than sexual or labour exploitation are highly underreported.   In order to better fight exploitation of minors for forced begging or forced criminal activities, it is necessary to increase the awareness of this phenomenon and increase cooperation between EU law enforcement agencies.

    This report highlights important developments in several areas of online crime. The changes in the production of malware are increasing rapidly in scale and sophistication. These are producing cybercrime capabilities ranging from simple key logging and theft of sensitive data, to ransomware and sophisticated and complex banking Trojans. Malware is also essential in creating and controlling botnets. Recent developments in the use of peer-to-peer networks to host command and control infrastructure create additional difficulties for law enforcement to disrupt or takedown botnets.Child sexual exploitation online continues to be a major concern with offences ranging from sexual extortion and grooming, to self-produced child abuse material (CAM) and live streaming, which pose particular investigative challenges. Offenders are facilitated by many of the same services and products as typical cybercriminals including anonymisation tools, secure e-mail, bulletproof hosting and virtual currencies.

    The European Financial Coalition against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Online (EFC) brings together key actors from law enforcement, the private sector and civil society in Europe with the common goal of fighting against commercial sexual exploitation of children online.The aim of this assessment is to identify current trends in production, distribution and access to commercial child abusive material (CAM), based on the insight and expertise of EFC members, as well as observations of EU Member States law enforcement representatives. Examining offending both in terms of child exploitations and as a criminal business, it seeks to highlight opportunities for intervention, and specific gaps in the information available. It is anticipated that the findings will be used to inform further intelligence gathering, crime prevention and enforcement activities by the EFC and its member organisations.Click here to see the update of this report, published by the EFC in april 2015.
