Two young girls, one of them still underage, were lured to Győr by a man, where he sold them for €1,135 to a woman and her partner.
The girls were told they would have to care for an elderly lady, cook and clean for her. They realised they had been sold to a couple, and wanted to get away from them, as they forced them into sex work, reported Origo.
The couple threatened to sell them to someone in Budapest if they tried to leave, and said they would have a much harder time there. The woman took erotic pictures of the girls, which were then uploaded by her partner to the internet.
They not only uploaded pictures but also clarified what kind of sexual services the girls provided and advertised them on certain sites. The money the girls received from clients was taken from them.
The girls were held captive in the house they were forced to work from, the door was always locked, and they never got a key.
The girls got lucky and managed to escape when another sex worker, who came to the house, left the key in the lock.
The sex trafficking group could face up to twenty years in prison.
