5 days. That’s how long Abha* had been detained in the back room of the brothel, forbidden from leaving the premises, forced to offer sex to customers. Her captivity was nothing like the hopes she had when she left home in response to a seemingly reputable job offer.
But fortunately, the sixth day was the day that The Exodus Road investigators and police came to find her.
Now, Abha is free, in the care of a safe home. Two men who trafficked her have been arrested. They’re facing trial, and if they’re convicted, they’ll serve 7 to 10 years in prison. Police are following up on leads from this case that are likely to lead to more arrests.
Thank you for being part of Abha’s freedom!
