Question for written answer
to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
Rule 117
Kristiina Ojuland (ALDE)

 Subject: VP/HR — Trafficking of girls and women
 Answer(s) 

Alarming cases have come to light of underage girls from Pakistan being sold to United Kingdom citizens of Pakistani descent. UK women’s organisations have also cited several cases of forced marriages of underage girls from Pakistan to UK citizens.

What steps has the European External Action Service taken to protect women in third countries against human trafficking and forced marriages?
