Typical Brazilian Sex Slaves Taken Overseas Are Girls 18 to 21 Years Old

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC), young women, between 18 and 21 years old, single, and with little education are the main victims of the international networks of human trafficking that operate in Brazil.

The information is part of a study conducted by UNODC and the Brazilian Ministry of Justice, in March and April of 2005.

UNODC points out that the little education has an influence on the victims’ decision. "Recruiters" usually promise good jobs and a consequent life quality improvement.

These first-level traffickers are usually men, between 31 and 41 years old, with good education level. Most of them are entrepreneurs who work at nightclubs, trade businesses, dating agencies, bars, tour agencies, and even beauty parlors.

The main destinations of these women are Spain, Italy, and Portugal. Victims are also sent to Switzerland, Israel, France, Japan, and the United States.

The United Nations office also realized that those responsible for the investigation of international trafficking of women often consider this crime less important than drug trafficking and weapon smuggling, when, in reality, they are all interconnected.

    WHAT ABOUT??????????????????????WHAT?
    In Brazil or outside Brazil, independantly of the number of prostitutes here or there, sex slavery is a CRIME.

    I am sure that the person who made the first comment KNOWS FROM EXPERIENCE how many prostitutes are in Brazil and how many brazilian ones are around the world.
    Then, yeah, why not blame it on the prostitute’s country of origin?????? Thinking ‘it’s all intrinsic to the culture’ is a very comfortable way to feel less guilty.

    That’s sad. But mostly disgusting.
    🙁
