CHISINAU, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moldovan police have caught a group of human traffickers. Some of the group members were Albanians, the Moldovan Interior Ministry said on Friday.
The group offered young women from poor families a good job in Europe. Upon the arrival in Europe their IDs were seized and the girls were told to immediately repay the groups’ expenditures on their employment. The possible punishment for the group members is from 7 to 15 years in prison.
The Moldovan parliament approved a national strategy for suppression of trafficking in human beings several years ago. Trafficking of Moldovan citizens has been reported from 32 countries. Some Moldovans were sold for removing their internal organs with transplantation purposes.
