Romanian couple and accomplice arrested for human trafficking in Marbella


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.
