Chad bans young girls from leaving the country

Chad’s government has banned young girls from leaving the country without parental permission.

This is a move which has been decried by women’s rights groups who have called for a U-turn.

Security Minister General Adiker explained by saying that “a migratory flow of young girls” was leaving the country for the “purpose of exploitation”.

The announcement prohibits airlines and transportation agencies from taking young girls on board.

The Chadian Women’s Rights League said the ban contradicted the principles of freedom of young girls.

According to the group, the law is sexist because young boys are also victims of human trafficking.

A report by the global initiative against transnational crime said human trafficking in Chad has increased in recent years.
