National Police agents have dismantled a criminal organization allegedly dedicated to human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of women in a dating apartment in Ourense. They have freed five victims and arrested seven people.
Two were arrested in Madrid and five in Ourense, where two house searches have been carried out and more than 18,000 euros in cash, narcotic substances, two mobile phones and various documents have been seized.
As reported by the National Police this Monday, April 17, the women were recruited in Colombia and Venezuela through social networks, taking advantage of their situation of vulnerability and economic need to convince them to come to Spain.
From there they told them how they should act so as not to arouse suspicion at the border and be able to travel to Ourense, where the leader of the organization was waiting for them, who was the one who told them a debt of about 3,000 euros and that they were going to practice prostitution in a dating floor to pay for it.
Once in Spain, the victims had to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without the freedom to leave without being escorted by a member of the organization and under constant surveillance through security cameras.
"They could not refuse any service", from which "they received a very small part of the benefits, since they took away all the money earned to pay off their debt", they explained from the Police.
This operation is part of the National Police Plan against Trafficking in Human Beings for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation.
