The government ordered the payment of GBP 1 million to victims of trafficking following the Supreme Court ruling

The government was ordered to repay 1 million pounds to the victims of the trafficking after the Supreme Court ruled that cutting its support payments was unlawful.

There follows a successful challenge from two applicants, a 19-year-old asylum seeker and victim of sex trafficking, against the cuts.

Her case was supported by charities for victims of human trafficking.

In early March, almost two months before Savid Javid took office, the weekly amount of money paid to more than 1,000 potential victims of human trafficking was cut by 42%.
