The prosecutor in Amsterdam has demanded that two females suspected of human trafficking will go to prison, one for 30 months and the second for 27 months. The two women, of Hungarian descent and aged 27 and 37, are suspected of having exploited three young women as prostitutes. "They have profited from all the money that the women earned by having sex with strange men day after day," the prosecutor states. An inquiry points out that the victims were forced into prostitution and had to relinquish a large part of their earnings.
