A sex trade trafficking, child prostitution ring is busted in the Netherlands … Human trafficking is nothing more than modern day slavery.
For a year, Dutch authorities had been investigating the disappearance of young Nigerians from asylum seeker centers. Since January 2006, about 140 underage Nigerians have disappeared from the centers, which are not tightly guarded. Several girls have been found working as prostitutes in France, Italy and Spain, prosecutors said.
A child prostitution ring was busted and 20 individuals arrested in the Netherlands, New York and across Europe. The suspects smuggled young girls out of Nigeria an into the Netherlands as part of a prostitution ring. The young girls were pressures under the intimidation of voodoo and were forced to swear an oath to a voodoo priest to pay back a so-called debt. Can anyone imagine just how long this was going on before it was investigated?
