POLICE arrested several people aged between 31 and 59 in an operation against prostitution and drug trafficking in Marbella.
The network, involved in drug trafficking and sexual exploitation was operating from a luxury villa and reportedly forced the victims to work 24 hours a day.
They had an alarm which alerted the girls to get dressed rapidly when a potential client arrived.
There were two members of the organisation who found the girls and others who controlled what they did in the villa, as well as the call-outs to hotels throughout Malaga, for which they charged €150 per hours.
The girls worked with strict timetables and shifts within a villa which had several independent areas with swimming pools, Jacuzzis, mirrors on the ceilings and mini-bars.
They could be forced to dye their hair if a client was looking for the company of a certain type of woman. Most of them didn’t speak Spanish, had financial problems and were not registered with the Social Security.
The complex had a sophisticated security system with cameras and double doors so the identity of clients could be checked before they entered.
Police also seized €4,000, and small quantities of cocaine and hashish.
