The Quintana Roo prosecutor’s office, in Mexico, carried out an operation in an establishment in the tourist area in which they rescued 17 women who were being sexually exploited.

Fifteen Argentine women and two Mexican women were rescued as part of an operation by the Mexican authorities in Playa del Carmen against human trafficking. In total, 17 women were found who were sexually exploited in an alleged rest in the Caribbean of Mexico.

According to information provided by the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Quintana Roo, the victims were attracted by false job offers in luxury hotels in one of the most important places for Mexican tourism.

“Upon arriving in Mexico, supposedly on vacation, they were recruited to work exhaustive days in bars-restaurants, taking advantage of the state of vulnerability derived from the lack of employment and poverty in which they lived in Argentina,” said the State Prosecutor’s Office.

In the procedure, three Mexican men were arrested for their probable participation in this illegal act committed in the municipality of Solidaridad and were placed at the disposal of the Public Ministry to define their legal situation.

The state of Quintana Roo, in the Mexican Caribbean, is the country’s main tourist destination, but civil organizations have warned of human trafficking that occurs in that territory.

The Quintana Roo Prosecutor’s Office shared a video and images of the detainees in Playa del Carmen that were made available to the competent authorities.

At the end of the inspection, the agents placed the closure seals and it is expected that the immigration situation of the Argentine women will be resolved shortly.
