Colombia makes arrests in sex trafficking plot that lured women to China

first_img“At these places, the young women were allegedly held against their will,” Colombia’s attorney general’s office said in a statement. “Their passports and personal documents were taken away.”The traffickers imposed debts on them of $14,000, which they were forced to pay off by making $600 a day in sex work, the top prosecutor said.The traffickers preyed on young, unemployed and poor women with “perverse deception,” the office said.Among those arrested were five women, whom authorities said arranged travel and visas for the victims who were flown via Madrid and Amsterdam before reaching Beijing. Colombian police broke up an accused sex trafficking ring that recruited women in Colombia and forced them into prostitution in China, authorities said on Tuesday, exposing a plot of criminal deception that preyed upon poor and vulnerable women.Seven accused traffickers were arrested and charged with luring and sexually exploiting at least 30 Colombian women and migrants who were sent to work in nightclubs in the Chinese city of Guangdong, authorities said.The women were recruited on social media and on WhatsApp messaging with offers of well-paid work as models in China by traffickers who staged fake photo shoots in Colombia before sending them abroad, authorities said. In Latin America, sexual exploitation of women and girls remains the most common form of human trafficking.But while most victims in Latin America are trafficked within the region, the case points to China as a primary destination for Colombian women forced abroad.In a similar case in 2017, Colombian authorities busted a criminal ring that trafficked about 150 women into forced prostitution to China. That ring also used false job offers and made the women pay off even higher debts of $25,000 each.Under Colombia’s anti-human trafficking law, convicted traffickers can receive prison sentences of up to 23 years.Last year, Colombian authorities convicted 19 human traffickers, down from 26 convictions in 2018, according to the US State Departmentcenter_img Topics :last_img read more

Backup guards Kaleb Joseph and Frank Howard flash potential in win over Montana State

first_imgKaleb Joseph coasted by himself toward the rim before throwing down a one-handed dunk. He glided past the Syracuse bench on his way back down the court with one hand out after stretching the lead to 26. His first points in five contests brought life to a game, and a player, whose celebrations have mainly come from the sideline.“It definitely felt good to be in there for a little bit,” Joseph said.Along with Frank Howard, Joseph has composed half of a backcourt tandem stuck behind two fifth-year seniors. Combined, the pair averaged 16.2 minutes per game before Tuesday. Against Montana State, albeit with only five total points, the two saw nearly double the time, 31 minutes of action. They topped it off with eight assists to go along with defense atop the zone praised by interim head coach Mike Hopkins in Syracuse’s (9-3) 82-60 win over Montana State (5-7) in the Carrier Dome.“Those guys deserve it and they’re practicing hard, playing well,” Trevor Cooney said. “Especially in games like this … if they come in here and play well, I think it just gives them that boost.”Howard had scored in each of the three games prior to Tuesday. In his seven first-half minutes, he didn’t score but registered three assists. He ended up as one of three Syracuse players with five helpers as SU tallied a season-high 22.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJoseph chipped in three assists and added two steals, a branch of his game – defense – that suspended head coach Jim Boeheim has said earns the sophomore a spot on the bench. The Bobcats were often only able to beat Syracuse from beyond the arc, but those makes came mainly from the corners.“I thought Franklin Howard came into the game, him and Kaleb did a great job on the defensive end when they came in the backcourt together,” Hopkins said, “… when you see three of your players, Gbinije, Cooney and Howard with five assists, Kaleb Joseph with three in 13 minutes, that’s really unselfish play.”Howard’s lone bucket came on a drive to the hoop in the second half. He shielded off two defenders and scooped the ball off the backboard and in while drawing a foul.The Orange went 3-of-13 from behind the arc in the first half and Howard, who missed his only long-range attempt in the second half, had a decided approach knowing he’d man the point for a good chunk of the latter 20 minutes.“When my 3 ball isn’t falling,” Howard said, “it’s up to me to get to the rim and make up for it.”The Orange was able to showcase its backups against one of the weaker Division-I teams for a significant part of the second half and its second-string guards were at the forefront. And while its starters may go back to playing 38 minutes a game as conference play begins in just over a week, Syracuse’s backcourt depth flashed its potential when it could.
