“Among the victims there are three minors, one of them pregnant, informed the Peruvian Prosecutor’s Office”, according to El Nuevo Herald.
Peruvian authorities were able to dismantle the trafficking network thanks to two simultaneous operations that took place in the districts of La Victoria and San Martin de Porres. This was possible because one of the victims managed to escape and reported the situation to the police.
“In one of the operations five Venezuelan women were rescued, one of whom is five months pregnant, and one Colombian. The Venezuelan Juan Manuel Martínez Miara, aged 18, was detained and reported on Radio Nacional”, you can read in El Nuevo Herald.
US citizen Manolo Cabrera, aged 23, and Keily Castro Figuera, aged 24, were captured as well.
“In April, four other Venezuelan minors were rescued from a human trafficking network in Lima, after another raid in January where 18 women were freed in Arequipa”, the media said.
