The Strategic document refers to the EU Anti-Trafficking Directive and the EU Strategy towards the Eradication of THB (2012-2016) which lay a basis for it. It emphasises the fact that organised crime groups involved in THB have successfully combined illicit practices with strong business and technical skills. Their evolution into a professionalised and flexible service represents a growing challenge for EU law enforcement agencies (LEAs). In addition to the robust business model established by THB OCGs, there is a significant intelligence gap amongst LEAs regarding the financial aspects of THB. It is often unclear how much profit traffickers make, how proceeds are laundered and where they are invested.
