TWO Romanian women who were allegedly forced into prostitution in Marbella have been rescued by the National Police. The four individuals suspected of being behind the crime have been arrested, and face charges of human trafficking.
The women were originally living in England and Scotland, and met two men who lured them to Spain with false promises of work. Once in Spain, the two men – who were also Romanian – immediately changed their attitudes, and began to put restrictions on the women’s social lives and phone calls, and prevented them from leaving the home.
Additionally, the men took away their identification, threatened them, and forced them into prostitution.
During weekdays the two women were monitored by another three Romanian women, who made sure they were giving their services to clients, and also prevented them from escaping or trying to get help.
