Sex Slavery

The legal definition of slavery can be found in s270.1 of the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth) which states that slavery is the condition of a person over whom any or all of the powers attaching to the right of ownership are exercised, including where such a condition results from a debt or contract made by the person. Sex Work Law Reform Victoria strongly upholds that all forms of slavery should remain criminalised.
