Next year, the government will set aside NOK 150 million for its own aid program to combat human trafficking and modern slavery.

KrF (The Christian Peoples’ Party) leader and children’s and family minister Kjell Ingolf Ropstad brought the budget leak with him when he spoke to the party’s board on Friday.

“We will create a special assistance program to combat modern slavery. We are putting aside NOK 150 million next year,” Ropstad said.

“I hope that means even more people are coming out of slavery. That it prevents them from getting into the clutches of cynical ringleaders and being exploited in the worst way,” Ropstad said.

The state budget will be presented on October 7th.

  1. This is the same guy that steals children from loving families and puts them up for adoptions for no good reason at all. You don’t believe me? The European high courts beg to differ. This guy is garbage.
