Spain Breaks Up Male Prostitution Ring

Following on from the last blog post it isn't just women and children who are the victims of sex-trafficking. In Spain they have broken a male sex prostitution ring.

Apparently 60 - 80 Brazilian men were given a travel bag and airline ticket to Europe (often flying into Schengen, Luxembourg before being moved to Spain. Once there they were under threat to pay back their flight expenses and kept in brothels and given cocaine, poppers and viagra and put to work as male prostitutes. To pay back their fees of over €4000 on top of daily expenses of up to €200 the men were paying back half of what they earned.

A total of 14 people have been arrested eight in Palma de Mallorca, three in Leon, and one each in Madrid, Barcelona and Alicante.
