UK Parliament introduced the Modern Slavery Act in 2015 (MSA) with hopes of fighting crimes of corporate slavery and human trafficking in the UK.
Since its introduction, the number of prosecutions under the law has grown year on year (in 2017, 130 defendants were prosecuted, as opposed to 51 in 2016) but modern slavery is still prevalent in the UK, with most large companies not even aware that it exists in their supply chain.
