Summary/Abstract: The 2013 Law on the Amendments of the Criminal Law of the Republic of Srpske reformed the criminal provisions on the trafficking in human beings. The Law was enriched with the incriminations such as trafficking inhuman beings, trafficking in juveniles, and organizing of a crime group for the committal of the criminal offences of the trafficking in human beings,trafficking in juveniles. The criminal offence trafficking in human beings for the purpose of prostitution has been renamed as the criminal offence of allegation of prostitution. In this way the process of the harmonization of the criminal law legislation with the international standards has been completed.At the same time, this led to the division of powers between the state and the entities in this sphere of the criminal law.The author analyses the above mentioned criminal offences, and explains whether there is criminal-political justification for certain legal provisions.The particular attention has been devoted to the fact that the mode of enforcement of the criminal offence trafficking in juvenile is an aggravating circumstance.
