Bolkovac: Male colleagues purchased girls in Bosnia


When Kathryn Bolkovac was investigating the trafficking of young girls into prostitution in Bosnia ten years ago, she discovered that some of her colleagues were involved.

These were men who worked alongside her for the United Nations, for the US State Department and for the company she was employed by, DynCorp.
