Croatia’s Criminal Code (1997) punishes any person who
places another person in slavery, or keeps a person in such a state or a similar state, buys, sells or hands him or her over to another person, or is an intermediary in the purchase, sale or handing over of a person, or encourages another person to sell the freedom of a person in his or her care.
Croatia’s Criminal Code (1997), as amended to 2006, states that “[ordering] trafficking in human beings, in particular of women and children, or the enslavement of a person in any other way so that some or all of the powers originating in property rights are exercised over such person” is a crime against humanity.
