Human trafficking has human victims. This week, a truck driver pleaded guilty to 39 counts of manslaughter in the deaths of 39 Vietnamese immigrants who were discovered in the back of a container truck last year in southeastern England.
The victims were found dead in the back of the truck parked in an industrial park in October 2019. The incident is one of the worst cases of human smuggling ever discovered in Britain . The victims, ranging in age from 15 to 44, were crammed into the truck in an effort to smuggle them into the country.
