Six Czechs receive suspended sentence for 1990s sex trafficking of children


Three men and three women from the Czech town of Ústí nad Labem have received suspended sentences after being convicted of trafficking children to Germany for sexual purposes between 1995 and 1998. The sentences were lenient because of the number of years which had passed since the crimes were committed, according to Czech senator Kamila Krejcarová. The crimes in question saw the convicted offering both their own children and those of their relatives to paedophiles in Germany. In one case, a child as young as seven was offered.
