The National Police has freed a woman with an intellectual disability who was prostituted by deceit in a hostess club in Ávila and that had been captured in Romania.
As reported today by the General Directorate of Police, the operation in which this victim of trafficking has been released has culminated in the dismantling of an international network and the detention of three people, two of them in Ávila and one in Romania, after which the main responsible person has been placed in preventive custody.
The victim of trafficking was previously caught in Romania by the "lover boy" method, deceived by a man twenty-six years older than her.
To deceive her, this man took advantage of the extreme need and vulnerability suffered by the victim.
The police have verified the difference in the age of the woman with her collector, since when she was transferred to Spain the victim was 18 years old and the man who harassed her 44.
Since her arrival in Spain, the victim remained under the control of a network that exploited her sexually in a nightclub in Ávila.
The leader of this network had the help of a niece of his, who always accompanied the victim to control it, and the owner of the club in which it was exploited and subjected the girl to continuous threats against her and against her relatives.
In addition, the sex exploiters did not hesitate to use violence when they did not look for clients in the hostess club or when they just sat on a stool in the premises.
All the benefits were delivered to the head of the group and periodic shipments of money have been detected to the head of the network, the last month of 6,000 euros.
The police simultaneously arrested three people, two in Ávila, and one in Romania, the ringleader under a European arrest and surrender order, and released the victim.
