A Romanian citizen currently living in Hungary in the county of Csongrád-Csanád, forced three women to work as prostitutes in Germany.
According to police.hu, the man has several children from these women who were taken care of by his current Hungarian partner in her country. Meanwhile the mothers worked abroad.
Suspicion arose that the 52-year-old Ienő L. forced three women into prostitution in Germany and took away most of the money they earned.
He often threatened with beating them up and even with killing them.
While they were all in Germany, Ienő L.’s many children between the ages of 2 and 16, who were all from these three mothers, stayed at his current home in Hungary. The man’s current partner was taking care of them. Ienő L. forbade his kids to talk to their mothers.
As he took away almost all the money these women earned,
on many occasions, they could barely pay for their accommodation or even cover their daily meals.
His partner, the 32-year-old Erika P. knew all about the origin of the money; she acquired 4000 euros.
The police busted the couple on Monday after searching five houses in the county. Three of them were seized by the officers, together with two cars of almost 10 million forints of worth, a safe and several mobile phones. All these properties and objects that were seized and confiscated were acquired using illegal money and are worth more than 30 million forints – over 83 thousand euros.
On the course of the police operation, it turned out that on a property situated in the same settlement,
three men living in horrible, middle-aged conditions were practically captured and forced to do free labour.
They were forced to work for Ienő L. and do chores around the house, such as taking care of the household animals. They did not get paid but were only provided with accommodation, some food and cigarette.
Ienő L. is facing charges of human trafficking and forced labour, while his partner, Erika P., is charged with money laundering. Ienő L. has been detained, and the prosecution called for his arrest while his accomplice is on parole.
