  • The defendants were a married couple.They engaged in the recruitment and transportation of young women from Ukraine to Lebanon in the period going from 2005 until April 2009. To perform those activities, the spouses placed advertisements in a newspaper inviting young women aged 18 to 32 “to work at night clubs of Italy, Switzerland, Japan + ten more countries on the basis of the appropriate business visas and employment contracts and a guaranteed salary from EUR 600 to 2,000’. The advertisement also referred to a fake license allowing for the brokerage of employment of Ukrainian citizens abroad.

    The victims were told that they would work as waitresses or dancers and would not engage in prostitution. Some of them signed a document that was presented to them as an employment contract, but as it was in English and Arabic, they could not understand the content. Those who arrived in Lebanon were received by unidentified persons who operated in collusion with the spouses. The victims were told that they would engage in work at a night club but they would also have to provide sexual services to the clients because otherwise they would not be able to repay the expenses (around USD 800-900) borne by the receiving party in connection with their transfer to Lebanon. Each victim who travelled to Lebanon had to spend approximately around six months providing sexual services to clients at the respective night club.
