Málaga Police has broken up a prostitute ring
The girls came from Romania
The National Police has broken up an organisation dedicated to the trafficking of women which allegedly captured young Romanians by simulating false emotional relationships, which developed to sexual relationships in Spain.
Six people have been detained in the operation and the police have freed seven women, three of them underage, police said in a statement on Sunday.
The first investigations showed the men made the most of the women’s needs, telling them life was much better in Spain. But when they were here they were forced into prostitution sometimes with working hours of up to 14 hours a day.
The prostitutes were mainly directed by a family of Romanians known as ‘Los Turcu’ according to the police, and they exercised a strong control on them.
The women were threatened, coerced, and often injured in both Spain and Romania.
