Six suspected members of a Finnish-led gang who trafficked women including Nigerians for sex, have been arrested by the European police.
The police seized almost $3.4m (N1.22bn) in assets in four countries as well as luxury cars, jewellery, €30,000 in cash and also froze the suspects’ bank accounts in 12 different countries. 16 websites advertising sexual services were also shut down, and this led to the arrest of the alleged ringleader based in Marbella, Spain including two others. Other suspects were arrested in Malta, Romania and Finland.
“The suspected leader of the criminal group has carried out criminal activities in at least 15 countries. He used intermediaries to channel criminal proceeds to international multi-currency bank accounts” and also used small amounts of crypto currencies” said the Hague-based Europol.
The Nigerian women who were trafficked by the Finnish gang, worked as prostitutes in Finland and Sweden.
