A minor victim of human trafficking
A minor victim of trafficking in human beings, i.e. a person under the age of 18, is included in the Program of Support and Protection of a Victim / Witness of Trafficking in Human Beings implemented by KCIK.
If a minor victim of trafficking in human beings is unaccompanied in Poland, the guardianship court issues a decision to place them in a special care and educational facility ready to accept minor victims of trafficking in human beings or in a foster family, and to appoint a legal representative, i.e. a probation officer.
The probation officer represents the child in proceedings before the guardianship court and in other proceedings, e.g. related to the legalization of stay in Poland, or the organization of their return to the country of origin (provided that it is in the best interests of the child and if the procedure enables safe return to their country).
