UN holds debate on sex trafficking and abuse

The Whistleblower

A Hollywood movie which shows the alleged sexual trafficking of women in Bosnia in the 1990s by UN peacekeepers has been shown at UN headquarters in New York.

The Whistleblower is a fictional account of events that are said to have taken place in Bosnia.

A debate on how to counter sexual abuse and trafficking in war torn countries was held after the viewing.

Madeleine Rees of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom was the former top human rights chief in Bosnia at the time.

She spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about her past and current role in fighting these crimes.
