Many of the traffickers gangs for sexual exploitation in America, Asia and Europe are led by citizens of Tlaxcala in Mexico. That is why the mexican authorities launched investigations to detect the native “pimps” of the smallest state in the Mexican Republic, according to the announcement of the President of the Special Commission for Combating Trafficking of the Chamber of Deputies, Rosie Orozco.
In an interview at the end of the launching ceremony of the book “From Heaven to Hell in a Day”, its co-author and federal congresswoman Mrs Orozco said that the networks of traffickers have expanded its Tlaxcala origin, since there are cases in Spain, Germany, India and the United States, countries from three of the five continents.
However, she mentioned that in the country’s 32 states, only the authorities of the states of Chiapas, Chihuahua, Puebla, Tlaxcala and Mexico City, have started operations and actions against trafficking in persons for sexual exploitation.
To gauge the extent of responsibility in the crime by “pimps” of Tlaxcala, the federal congresswoman said that through the Special Congress Committee for Combating Human Trafficking , 62 victims have been treated, of which 80% of them accused as perpetrators and pimps certain criminals from Tlaxcala.
Among the victims of this crime, 85% are female children, while 15% are male.
But Mrs. Orozco stressed that the real battle against human trafficking and sexual explotation, is in obtaining judicial sentences against the offenders, in this sense, she said “in Mexico City there have been 20 sentences, in Chiapas only two sentences while there has not been any sentence in Tlaxcala but we are confident that the president of the High Court of the State (TSJE), Amado Justino Hernandez and all judges of Tlaxcala will dictate sentences and punish these criminals, in Mexico this law in particular against sexual exploitation is very strong and criminals are punishable by 40 years. “
