According to the head of Ocrtech, Elvire Arrighi, the victims, between the ages of 20 and 40, were mainly of Colombian and Venezuelan nationality, and in the least of cases, from Peru and Paraguay.
He also added that the network, whose organization was pyramidal, was run from Colombia by a couple who recruited the victims with false promises of a better future in Europe and collected the benefits.
“Women were exploited in an absolutely industrial way in France, with up to ten services per day, which allowed the network to obtain up to 30 million euros (31,614,588 USD) annually in profits,” the authority said.
He also pointed out that this type of international cooperation is unprecedented between France, Colombia and Spain, which shows that in the face of organized crime without borders, police forces can ally themselves.
