Investigative police and labour inspection

  • Ensure that financial investigation is initiated from the very beginning, together with the criminal investigation, since this is crucial for actual (proof and calculation of) payment of compensation awards.
  • Increase capacity to identify, trace, seize and confiscate proceeds of crime at an early stage of the investigation to secure both sufficient evidence (of profit made from the exploitation of the victim), and their availability for compensating victims directly, or for contributing to a victim compensation fund.
  • Take an active role with regard to the provision of information to victims about compensation options.
  • Give more attention to the material and immaterial damage of the victims in investigation.
  • Ensure better protection of victims with regard to their wages in general.
