February 12, 2009: In a further step forward in a long-running BPSOS campaign, US immigration authorities recently sent information requests to the human trafficking victims in the Daewoosa case. Daewoosa, as noted previously here, was the largest human trafficking case ever prosecuted by the US government, and one in which BPSOS played a pivotal role.
