Eight Minor Women Saved from Prostitution in Mandaluyong

Eight Minor Women Saved from Prostitution in Mandaluyong

| On 17, Oct 2014

Eight minor women were saved from prostitution by the authorities during an entrapment operation in Mandaluyong City.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Anti-Human Trafficking Division set an entrapment operation to catch two pimps on the act of selling women. The entrapment was planned for more than a week along with continues monitoring of their activities.

The agents of NBI first acted as customers and made a deal with the pimps. Both parties agreed with paying a down payment with the remaining balance will be settled when the women are delivered. The place was a hotel in Mandaluyong.

The suspects were identified as Rolly Batilaran alias Samantha and Argie Balagos. Both of them admitted that they are into such type of job.

The two suspects are facing criminal charges in relation to violation of Anti-Human Trafficking, Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children and Child Abuse.

The rescued women, on the other hand, are brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) where they will undergo stress debriefing and counselling in order for them to recover from the pains of their experiences.

According to the NBI, poverty is one of the main reason why women, specially the minor allow themselves to be put in such pedestal.
