A Sarapiquí (Heredia) court sentenced  a 33 year old woman to 27  years in jail in a case of human trafficking and prostitution of a minor. The woman, identified by her last name, Castro, was arrested last March 15 in the bar Alisán, in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí.

Arrested along Castro was another woman, 30 years old,  who is alleged to be an accomplice and still awaiting trial.

Taking part in the investigation were the Sección de Delitos Contra la Integridad Física y Tráfico de Personas del Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ), Fiscalía de Delitos Sexuales and the Departamento de Atención Integral (DAI) del Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI),

The case is a reality of the cruelty of the business that occurs in various areas of the country and the deception used to lure young girls from poor countries like Nicaragua, with the promise of decent work, such as a babysitter, only to be put to work as prostitutes.

Trial records show that the young girl was forced to satisfy the sexual desires of the bar customers, and also to consume drugs. Confiscated during the arrest were quantities of marijuana and cocaine.

In addition to the 15 year old Nicaraguan girls, investigators rescued six other minors, of which one working illegally as a waitress and another found in one of the rooms in the bar with a male customer.

Rescued also by OIJ detectives was a 28 year old Nicaraguan woman who had had her documents taken from her and forced to work illegally.
