Series 4 Episode 1 - 28.11.2015

Child and youth slavery is on the rise in the Gulf Monarchies and ever growing numbers of poor children from the poorest countries are being taken for exploitation to the region. Domestic service industries, child marriages, camel riding and other sports activities and also the construction industries are just some of the labour abuse categories, but prostititution and paedophilia are lurking under the surface too.
