Europol: 107 arrested in Europe-wide human trafficking probe

The European Union’s Law Enforcement Agency,Europol, on Monday said 107 people have been arrested as part of a Europe-wide investigation into human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

“In an operation led by Austrian police and involving law enforcement agencies from 22 EU states and third parties, investigators targeted organised crime groups trafficking vulnerable individuals for the purpose of sexual exploitation,’’ Europol said in a statement.

According to the statement, the nationalities of the victims and suspects indicate the prevalence in the EU of trafficking networks from Nigeria, South America and Eastern Europe.

However, the investigation was vast in scale. “More than 125,000 people in over 4,000 locations, among them red-light districts, brothels and massage parlours, were checked during its course,’’ it said.

Europol said that “special attention” was paid to online advertisements featuring victims of sexual exploitation.
