1/15/2013 -- WGBH -- "Human Trafficking: The Business of Trafficking" Anti-Trafficking Consultant Kenneth Franzblau comments on the 'sex tourism' industry. (In 1996 Equality Now issued an action on sex tourism, calling for the shutdown of NY-based Big Apple Oriental Tours. Following an unprecedented civil case, the operators of the company were indicted by a grand jury for promotion of prostitution in 2004. This represented the first prosecution of a sex tour operator under the New York State “promoting prostitution” statute and led to the statute’s amendment to include operating sex tours as a form of promoting prostitution.)
