In Nguyen (Anti-Trafficking Convention: respondent’s duties)  UKUT 170 (IAC) the Upper Tribunal accepts what I had thought was the well established point that the Home Office has duties to historical victims of trafficking:
The duties of a signatory to the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings include responsibility towards a victim of historic (sic) trafficking into the country from which they later travel (untrafficked) to the signatory state.
