The Supreme Court has ratified a sentence from the provincial court in Almería which gave prison terms totalling 62 years to seven members of a Romanian network based in Vera which forced two countrywomen to work as prostitutes in local clubs. Europa Press reports how two of the suspects assaulted one of the women as she was travelling by bus to Almería to look for work in September 2003, and held on to her passport to force her to work for them. She worked in their club without pay for a number of weeks before she managed to escape and ask for help from the police. The other woman was freed by the Civil Guard shortly afterwards.The network’s victims will receive 30,000 € compensation from their captors.
