10 Women Rescued From Sexual Slavery In Costa Rica So Far This Year

So far this year, authorities have managed to rescue 10 women victims of human trafficking. That is, women who were contacted through deception of better opportunities for employment, study or salary, but end up being sexually exploited.

The statistics of the Nacional de la Mujer (Inamu) – National Institute of Women – reveals the presence of this crime and confirms that Costa Rica is a country of origin, transit and destination for trafficking in persons.

“It is painful to know that there are unscrupulous people who take advantage of the conditions of vulnerability of many women and deceive them, offer them supposedly well-paid jobs and finally turn them into sex slaves,” said Patricia Mora, Executive President of Inamu.

According to the Inamu, last year 11 victims were given assistance, victims of sexual slavery in coastal and border areas, massage rooms, farms and tourist centers, “vulnerable places” to human trafficking.

“This situation can not be allowed in Costa Rica,” said Mora.
