Five women, one teen boy: RESCUED!
They were all promised a good job, but they all ended up forced to work in a brothel. None were even allowed to leave unless escorted by pimps and enforcers. These survivors had different lives, but they were trapped in the same hellish story.
Until seven TER national operatives and 22 police officers stepped in.
Through a joint operation made possible by TER investigative work, taking place in two different locations, these five women and a teenage boy found freedom.
Seven male traffickers and brothel managers were arrested, and if convicted, each could face up to 10 years of imprisonment.
The story of rescue and freedom continues. Thank you to all of our TER supporters who make this work possible!
