The authorities reported that in the search they carried out during the early hours of Thursday, July 4, they arrested Soledad A., the alleged operator in the city of Mérida of a transnational criminal cell dedicated to human trafficking.

With the participation of Interpol, the alleged criminal leader, the Cuban Cristóbal Paulino F., was also arrested in Mérida, accused of the crime of human trafficking, in the form of forced prostitution or sexual exploitation, for which they are already carrying out the procedures present him, before the authority in Mexico City.

Mexican federal police during the closure of one of the nightclubs recently searched, which were part of a human trafficking network.

The FGR seized the six searched properties, the Candela, Bandidas, and Tropicana Angus nightclubs. They also seized three houses that functioned as brothels.

According to the authorities, the criminals forced their victims of trafficking in Yucatán to work as prostitutes.
