Five arrested on sex trafficking charge in Almeria


THE National Police has dismantled a criminal organisation in Almeria, allegedly dedicated to the sexual exploitation of women recruited through Russian social networks.

Three men and two women have been arrested in El Ejido. The gang would reportedly contact their victims through Russian social networks and offer them fake jobs as waitresses in catering establishments.

The group was allegedly responsible for organising the trip and visas to Spain and then informed their victims that they had to pay off a debt of €3,000 through prostitution.

This operation was part of the National Police’s efforts against human trafficking and sexual exploitation launched in 2013.

The National Police activated 900 105 090 and [email protected] es to facilitate collaboration from citizens about this type of crime.
