This article inquires into the critical legal procedure following the crimes of slavery and human trade for sexual exploitation. We wondered about the epistemological and legal implications of the recent transformations of sex trade and the effect that this produces on judicial context. We have given particular attention to the identification of the human trade victims during trial and to the instruments used by law in order to properly face the continuous changes within the personal dependence relations. The current research highlights processes of reification and victimization within the legal procedure: special attention is given to the public debate which unfolds around the narrations of the injured parties.
