Servitude
Forced or Compulsory Labour
Human Trafficking
Provisions related to slavery are found in the 2007 Constitution at article 28 which declares that no one can be kept in slavery and the Criminal Code which criminalises: submitting a person to slavery; keeping a person in such a condition; buying, selling or surrendering a person; mediating the buying, selling, surrendering of a person; inciting a person to sell his freedom or that of his dependent; or transporting a person in a position of slavery.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Montenegro which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery, although Article 71 of the Constitution affirms that marriage must be based upon free consent of both parties and article 446 of the Criminal Code criminalises transporting a person in a position similar to slavery.
Provisions related to servitude are found in the Constitution at article 28 which declares that no one can be kept in a servile position.
Provisions related to forced labour are found in the Constitution which prohibits forced labour at article 63.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the Criminal Code which criminalises trafficking in persons under article 444 and trafficking in children for adoption under article 445.
