15 suspects have been the target of an undercover investigation carried out by Israel Police forces over the last few months
ed note–again, as we pointed out in a recent post dealing with the same topic, this is ‘business as usual’ as far as the followers of Judah-ism are concerned. Just like other moral outrages such as the deliberate murder of yet-to-be born children and the moral permissibility which Judah-ism affords in utilizing children for sexual purposes, the trafficking in women for prostitution services is a tradition going all the way back to the very beginning of the affair as told in the book of Jenesis and which has continued up to the present day. Virtually all the women who are hailed as heroines in Judah-ism, from Sarah to Esther as recounted in the Torah in some manner utilized the magic between their legs in doing the Gentiles in that in some way benefited the ‘children of Israel’, as they love to refer to themselves.
Israel Police raided the homes of 15 people suspected of involvement in an international sex trafficking ring on Wednesday morning.
The suspects have been the target of an undercover investigation carried out by Lachish District Israel Police forces over the last few months along with the Israel Tax Authority and the Southern District Prosecutor’s Office after the suspicion arose that they were involved in an international trafficking network.
The network uncovered by the investigation would operate to bring women into Israel from abroad, with a focus on women from the former USSR. Once in Israel, they would be pimped out for sexual services.
The network was headed by four suspects, men and women between the ages of 30 and 59, who employed other suspects in an organized manner, with positions such as financial management personnel, hotel owners to provide women housing, drivers to bring the women to their ‘clients,’ and employees who would ‘market’ the women and maintain relationships with criminal groups abroad in order to locate potential victims for their scheme.
As part of the investigation, the Lachish District Police uncovered the method by which women would be pimped out to clients. Upon their arrival in Israel, each woman would be professionally photographed, and she would be assigned a nickname and price tag for various services that clients could purchase. From there, her details would be distributed among the customer base through a variety of different platforms.
Trafficking suspects face multiple charges
On Wednesday morning, police and security officials raided the homes of the 15 suspects, all of whom were located in the cities of Bat Yam, Ashdod and Rishon Lezion, as well as the hotels operated by the trafficking network in the center of the country.
Over NIS 400,000 in cash and foreign currencies was seized during the raid along with five vehicles that were allegedly used as part of the trafficking operation.
The suspects were arrested and taken in for questioning and are facing charges of human trafficking, drug trafficking and money laundering, among others. They are set to be brought in front of the Ashkelon Hashalom Magistrates Court later in the day on Wednesday and their detention is expected to be extended.
‘This is one of the most significant and worthwhile cases that has been conducted in the Lachish District Division in recent years,’ said District Commander Doron Aloni of the trafficking bust. ‘In light of the fact that these are serious offenses in trafficking human beings in general and women in particular, who were taken advantage of by perpetrators for their personal and financial gain while treating them as goods on the market of providing sexual services.’
