| Three members of the criminal group have been in a club in Blanca | The victim was attacked by the person in charge of the premises, when he refused to prostitute himself because he was ill During the period of the state of alarm, the complainant was forced to work continuously The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, within the framework of the 'Plan against Trafficking in Human Beings for Purposes of Sexual Exploitation', has carried out the operation 'BLANKABANA', in which the three members of a criminal group have been arrested allegedly dedicated to drug trafficking and directing a plot related to prostitution. Specialized officers in the Judicial Police of the Benemérita started the operation a few weeks ago, when a woman denounced the person in charge of a local alter after having been attacked for refusing to prostitute herself because she was ill. The victim, a Colombian national, had arrived in Spain a few months ago.
It was picked up at the Alicante airport by the accused and transferred to a club in the municipality of Blanca. After filing the complaint, the Association for the Prevention, Reintegration and Attention to Prostituted Women (APRAMP) took charge of the care, in coordination with the EMUME (Minor Women's Team) of the Civil Guard and with the advice of the Technical Unit of the Judicial Police of the General Directorate of the Civil Guard. At the same time, the civil guards opened a line of investigation, regarding an alleged crime against public health, upon detecting that in the aforementioned club there was a continuous consumption, by the clientele, of narcotic substances; not ruling out that the drug was provided to customers by the managers of the premises. Collaboration of the Labor and Social Security Inspection Once all the necessary indications have been obtained and in collaboration with personnel from the Labor and Social Security Inspection, the Civil Guard has coordinated an extensive device made up of members of the Judicial Police, Citizen Security, Prosecutor and Cynological Service, with a trained dog in detection drug, to carry out an on-site inspection related to the investigation. Once in the establishment, the civil guards interviewed six women who allegedly practiced prostitution, who stated that the local owners profited from the drinks that clients took when they alternated with them, thus profiting from the activity of the prostitution that was practiced there. Inside the club, the Civil Guard found three doses of cocaine hidden in a cabin on the roof of a backyard that, in turn, communicated with a neighboring path through a secondary door.
About ten meters away, hidden in an irrigation chest, the researchers found a large number of cocaine doses, identical to the previous ones and part of this substance presented in 'rock', as well as two precision scales used to manipulate the drug. The inspection culminated in the seizure of more than 1,500 doses of cocaine and with the arrest of the owner, the person in charge 'Madame' and the lieutenant of the first, all as alleged perpetrators of the crimes related to prostitution and against public health, for trafficking in drugs.
The first of them was instructed to carry out proceedings also as the alleged perpetrator of a crime, injuries against the victim, which was the fact that originated the police operation. Entry into prison for the head of the club The detainees, the drug seized, the effects seized and the proceedings investigated have been placed at the disposal of the Investigating Court of Cieza (Murcia), which has exercised the judicial direction of the operation and has decreed the entry into prison of the head of the club.
