The Modern Day Slavery Act (31 July 2015)

The new act came into force on the 31st July 2015 replacing the human trafficking legislation. Modern day slavery comes in many forms, however if it involves a child then it is abuse and must be acted upon. The case of Ilyas and Tallat Ashar in Salford brings this close to home.
