>From Hungary several women from our area went to Kosova to work in the new
night clubs serving K-FOR troops.

Some have recently returned after several weeks work. They report that
although they were able to make very good money, however the conditions were
very difficult and the general lawlessness created an atmosphere of fear and
insecurity.

They said that the women from Moldova and the Ukraine had the most
difficulties as they were in debt to the bar owners for their travel and
accommodation. They also said that some of these Ukrainian women had been in
Greece and wanted to go to Italy to work. They said that many of the women
had been expecting to work in Kosova and then to go via Albania to Italy.

They said that there was a culture of violence throughout the province and
that any small dispute could result in bloodshed. They eventually found a
house in a city were they could sell sex to local KFOR troops. The money was
very good, but they were very fearful of local gangsters.

To ensure their safe return to Hungary they employed two Hungarian men to
drive and collect them from Kosova.

Their overall opinion was they would not recommend travelling to Kosova for
any sort of work, let alone sex work.
