The Knesset on Tuesday approved a new law prohibiting trafficking in human beings. The law prescribes prison terms of up to 20 years for holding a person against his will for the purpose of work or other services. It comes in addition to an existing law that prohibits trafficking for the purpose of prostitution. The bill was approved without opposition in second and third readings by a majority of 30 MKs.
