Russian-owned brothel uncovered in Palodia

THE 44-year old Russian owner of a high-end brothel that looked like an ancient Greek palace was remanded by the Limassol District Court for six days, following a late night raid on Tuesday that ended with several arrests.

Thirteen women were among those arrested, along with two other men that acted as security guards. Initially, 18 women had been held, but according to the police five of them were employees and the rest seem to have engaged in sexual acts.

Labour and sex trafficking investigations drop in Cyprus

Cyprus

By Stefanos Evripidou

CYPRUS remains a source and destination country for men and women subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking, the US State Department said in its 2014 global trafficking report, released yesterday.

Despite efforts to meet minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking, the Cypriot government did not demonstrate an overall increase in those efforts compared to the previous reporting period, keeping Cyprus on the Tier 2 Watch List.

On the contrary, investigations into trafficking, prosecutions and convictions fell by more than half on all counts.

Victims of trafficking identified in Cyprus came from Europe, Asia and Africa, said the report, noting that women, primarily from eastern Europe, Vietnam, India, and sub-Saharan Africa, are subjected to sex trafficking. read the full story here
