Regarding Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) cases, secondary victimization can occur by either attitude or action of the authorities that intervene in the process. Signs of doubt about the narrative of the victims, devaluating the facts referred by them or showing lack of attention and understanding about the traumas they have suffered, can make the victims feel abandoned, which in turn increases their unease, insecurity and results in secondary victimization.
