A PROSTITUTION ‘pimping’ gang which offered sex loyalty cards to customers was dismantled in Barcelona, police said. With the card, regular customers would get free sex after paying for ten ‘sexual encounters’. Twelve alleged members of the gang have been arrested.
When the women arrived in Spain, their documentation was taken by the gang who then forced them to work as prostitutes, handing the takings over to them.
The network provided a 24 hour service where Chinese women were forced to have sex with customers at five apartments in several neighbourhoods of the city.
The highly organised gang advertised its services on the internet and in the local press.
Meanwhile, 15 Romanians were arrested by La Linea National Police for allegedly forcing women into prostitution in Campo de Gibraltar (Cadiz). It is thought they also operated in Malaga Province and northern Spain.
