THREE Romanian people have been arrested for human trafficking in Spain.
The investigation, dubbed Operation Maori, was launched after the police received a tip off about a 26-year-old victim from New Zealand suffering at the hands of the scheme.
Police have since released the young woman, who was being forced into prostitution at a club in Marbella where the pimps had trapped her.
At the helm of the plot was a 41-year-old man and his 35-year-old wife, whose house was raided by police.
In the house nearby the Marbella club, authorities discovered evidence of their crime on computers and phones, as well as a compressed air pistol.
The couple and one accomplice now face charges for prostitution, human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
