  • In the months of July and August of 2005, the defendant enticed the victim, E.I., through a marriage proposal. The defendant persuaded E.I. to go to Italy to earn some money for a better life. E.I. agreed, and the defendant gave her a fake passport with a Greek visa.  In September 2005, the defendant sent E.I., via taxi and with 1,000 euros for travel expenses, across the border through the Kapshtica crossing point. E.I. then took a plane from Athens to Milan and stayed at the defendant’s brother’s apartment. After a week, the defendant asked E.I. to work as a prostitute on the street. After two months, she was arrested. On February 7, 2006, the mayor of Como, in a decree, ordered her expulsion from Italy. E.I. returned to Albania and, in March 2006, the defendant asked E.I. to return to Italy. E.I. refused. The defendant then asked E.I. to work as a prostitute in Tirana, and E.I. also refused. The relationship between the defendant and E.I.  deteriorated until April 2006, when the parties were involved in a fight.

    The defendant also recruited I.T., a neighbour of the defendant. In March 2005, after learning that I.T. had worked as a prostitute in Italy in 1998 to 2000, he proposed that she return to Italy to work as a prostitute and to share the profits. The defendant obtained a fake passport for I.T. with a Greek visa. In late March 2005, I.T. crossed the Albanian border at Permet, travelled to Athens and then to Milan. She was transported from the defendant’s brother’s house to a hotel in Como, where she stayed for three months and worked as a prostitute. On June 27, 2005, I.T. attempted to travel from Italy to Albania via ferry but was arrested by the Italian police and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment by a court in Venice for using a fake passport. I.T. returned to Albania on September 25, 2005. In January 2006, the defendant again asked that I.T. return to Italy to work as a prostitute and procured fake documentation, which was later seized by the police.
