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.

Women contacted through deception then being sexually exploited end up living in deplorable conditions

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.

Authorites continue their actions to eradicate sex slavery in the country

But this is not only happening in our country. Costa Rica authorities have identified Costa Rican victims in countries such as the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, Spain and the Bahamas.

Likewise, victims of Peru, El Salvador, Ecuador, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Russia, China, Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Haiti, South Africa, the Philippines, Colombia and Venezuela have been found in Costa Rica.
