Parliamentary questions
11 May 2012
E-004866/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Kristiina Ojuland (ALDE)

 Subject: Trafficking of girls and women
 Answer(s) 

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

What steps has the Commission taken, and what steps does it envisage to take in the future, to ensure the effectiveness of visa controls, in order to prevent the trafficking of women from third countries to any Member State, regardless of whether or not it is a member of the Schengen area?
