Slave-trader from Azerbaijan has been arrested in Novocherkassk
Police executives of Novocherkassk detained a citizen of Azerbaijan suspected of man sale. It is not clear yet how many facts of this illegal trade he has to his credit.
A city resident addressed officials of the Novocherkassk Department for Struggle against Organized Crime. She said that her daughter was in the Arabian Emirates where she was forced to work as a prostitute. They started to check this information and found out that the girl managed to go abroad under the patronage of an Azerbaijan citizen.
Later they found out that the "employer" had drawn up all the girl's departure papersfor his own money, and in the Emirates she was sold to a fashionable hotel at the price of 7 thousand dollars.
Now it is being decided how the girl can be liberated from abroad. Police executives have got information that the citizen of Azerbaijan arrested on suspicion of his connection with this case has been earning for a living in such a way for a long time.
