Support for victims of human trafficking and exploitation
If you have been forcibly taken by someone to another country or persuaded to do so, or if someone forces you to work against your will and does not allow you to leave when you wish to do so, it is likely that you have become a victim of human trafficking. In this case, contact the nearest police station in the country where you are situated. If you do not speak the local language, still seek for help. The police will provide you with a translator, as well as contact the nearest representative office of Lithuania.
If you became a victim of human trafficking or exploitation in Lithuania, you can directly contact the police, State Labour Inspectorate or other organizations that provide support.
