hardship she would suffer if forced to return to COUNTRY—she would be unable to obtain

power and influence to seek retribution against Ms. CLIENT and cause great harm to her.

CLIENT meets the definition of a victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons as
defined by 22 U.S.C. § 7102(8), which defines the crimes as “the recruiting, harboring,
transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force,
fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage
or slavery.” In this case, TRAFFICKER, a COUNTRY diplomat, recruited and transported Ms.
CLIENT to the U.S. for labor through fraud and used multiple forms of coercion to subject her to
involuntary domestic servitude, as described below.
