Slavery and slavery-like practices are a reality in South Australia (SA). These situations include cases of forced marriage; forced labour; and domestic, labour and sexual servitude in intimate partner violence cases linked to partner visas. These slavery practices are a gross violation of human rights as they reduce a person to a commodity to be exploited, and they are criminalised in the Commonwealth Criminal Code 1995 (divisions 270 and 271).
