MEXICO CITY, August 23. – Four men were arrested in two buildings of Iztapalapa and Cuauhtemoc where human trafficking was exercised. Central Research Attorney for the Attention of the Crime of Trafficking in Persons, Juana Camila Bautista Rebollar, reported that Carlos Murrieta Argüelles, Alfredo Delgado Arteaga, Julio Cesar Flores Aguilar Delgado and Raul Castrowere detained.
The detainees were brought before the criminal court in Male Detention Centre East.
He said that the actions that led to the capture elements were performed by Federal Police based on citizen complaints, which at tracking them, they located two properties: one located on Eje Central Lazaro Cardenas and Fernando Ramirez Colonia Obrera, and the other in San Lorenzo street, Colony Los Angeles, Iztapalapa
One of the properties was advertised through cards promising a “full service”.
They had no ad but had the peculiarity that in Obrera Metro station or Metro station UAM they distributed cards with the address, that was their advertising medium,” explained the official.
The two secured buildings will be proposed for forfeiture. In both sites they rescued 18 women, aged between 25 and 40 years old, all Mexican nationals. The detainees obtained economic benefits through the sex service that the women exercised in the reffered homes.
The prosecutor explained that the two buildings are connected. In those places worked the same group of women who were even moved from one house to another according to the needs of the moment.
“If one of the sites had too many customers and not enough girls, they transferred a girl from one place to another in order to serve customers,” the official of the PGJDF remarked.
The accused were brought before the criminal court on duty in the Eastern Male Detention Centre.
