Resumo

O governo britânico afirmou sua determinação em lidar com as finanças do crime organizado, inclusive as finanças do tráfico de seres humanos, através de lidar com “os lucros ilegais substanciais dos traficantes”, “atacando o lucro de traficantes e escravagistas através
de maior apreensão de bens e investigação financeira” (HM GOVERNMENT, 2015, p. 22) e
tomando medidas para assegurar que a escravidão moderna não recompense os autores
do crime. O propósito deste artigo, que é baseado em diversas fontes que incluem entrevista com agentes policiais e outros especialistas, relatórios de inteligência da polícia
britânica e fontes abertas, é prover observações iniciais sobre a questão da investigação
financeira de traficantes de seres humanos no Reino Unido e avaliar o quanto a intenção
de combate ao tráfico de pessoas declarada pelo governo britânico está sendo realizada
de fato.
