MEXICO CITY -- Mexico's National Human Rights Commission says 85% of the country's human trafficking victims between 2012 and 2017 were women and girls.
The commission's definition covers a range of 26 crimes from sexual and labor exploitation to organ trafficking. It found more than 5,200 victims in documented cases during the five-year period. The review does not include migrant smuggling.
Commission president Luis Raúl González condemned a lack of prevention policy and support for victims. Children made up 27% of the victims.
