The police and the State Prosecutor's office are not implementing the recommendations of the parliamentary committee set up to address the problem of trafficking in women.
According to a follow-up report, the police continue to hold many of the women in detainment facilities rather than in a special shelter set up for them, Israel Radio reported Sunday morning.
Furthermore, the legal proceedings against the pimps take a long time and the state does not demand monetary damages from them as they are obligated to by law.
Committee head MK Zehava Gal-On said a national authority to fight human trafficking should be created.
