The Guardia Civil has broken up an organised criminal group that forced women into prostitution in the Vega Baja. 

Two arrests have been made, in Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada, both of Romanian men, who are accused of human trafficking and sexual exploitation for prostitution.

The operation, codename ‘Acyclovir’, is the continuation of an investigation that was launched 8 months ago by the Guardia in Teulada and Moraira which has already led to the arrest of seven people.

The organization allegedly brought women from their home country with the promise of a good job and a prosperous salary in Spain but, once here they were forced into prostitution, both on the roads and in local clubs, with most of the proceeds handed over to their ‘pimps’.  They were told that the prostitution was only a temporary measure until such time as they could be placed in better jobs.

During two house searches in Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada, two men were arrested while several mobile phones, cash, ten grams of cocaine and ten of methamphetamine were seized as well as a large amount of documentation, which is currently pending further unvestigation.

The Guardia also found several women in the homes who were all put into the care of  social services.

Meanwhile, the operation continues with further arrests expected..
