sex slaves

00:29 |

women and girls are trafficked into the country by mafias who trap them in a form of debt bondage. Effectively sex slaves, they are forced into prostitution to pay back impossible debts which barely diminish. Traffickers have been known to hold children as ‘deposits’ until their mothers pay back what they supposedly owe.

Legal confusion regarding prostitution in Spain has created a very overt and burgeoning sex industry which draws in visitors from abroad with the neon signs of its motorway brothels. It is technically illegal to earn money by managing prostitutes, but prostitution itself is legal and brothels obtain hotel licenses in order to claim that they simply rent rooms to prostitutes. With legality has not come regulation, and many of Spain’s 2,000 or so clubs are controlled by mafia groups and worked by debt bonded immigrants.
