Brazilian prostitution ring smashed in Las Palmas
42 people have been detained in Gran Canaria following the discovery of a massive prostitution network operating out of night-clubs in Las Palmas and Telde. The authorities say the ring came to their attention after information was received from Brazil's Interior Ministry over a year ago that dozens of women were being 'exported' to the Canaries for the sex industry.

line
26.01.2006 - It appears that the women were forced into prostitution to pay off the 4000 euros charged by the network to arrange their entry into Spain. Early reports say that the Brazilians and women from other countries in South America were kept under tight control in Las Palmas, including surveillance by webcams, which identified those who were 'not working hard enough' on the streets or in the clubs. Police are currently examining extensive documentation seized in raids on several premises in Gran Canaria, including the Kimbanda Club which is believed to have been the centre of operations for the ring. The people arrested include Brazilians, Colombians and Spaniards.
