There appears to be no legislation in place in Peru which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery, although practices similar to slavery may form an element of an offence of trafficking under article 153 of the Penal Code.
Provisions related to servitude are found in the Constitution at article 2(24)(b) which prohibits servitude in all its forms. Servitude may also form an element of an offence of trafficking under article 153 of the Penal Code.
Provisions related to forced labour are found in the Constitution which declares that individuals have a right to work freely (article 15) and that no one is obliged to work without free consent (article 23). Article 151 of the Penal Code also criminalises forcing a person to do anything by threat or violence. Forced labour or services may also form an element of an offence of trafficking under article 153 of the Penal Code.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the Constitution at article 2(24)(b) which prohibits traffic in human beings in all its forms and the Penal Code which criminalises trafficking in persons under articles 153, 153A and 182.
