357 women were victims of ,,trafficking"

According to information provided by ,,Center of Protection of migrants
and citizens" approximately 357 women were victims of ,,trafficking" for
last 4 years. They who managed to return conceal the fact. Only Manana
Menteshashvili came to center and declared that she, and 6 other women
aged between 18-26, were transported abroad by tourist agency ,,Georgia
Express Light". They were transported to Canada first and then illegally
to U.S.A. They appeared in nightclub of Miami. They were deprived of all
documents and pushed to prostitution. According to Nugzar Sulashvili, head
of the "Center of Protection of migrants and citizens", about 18 cases of
same character were reported to the Center last month. According to
international experts, some high rank officials contribute to the
development of this illegal business. Many tourist firms are under the
umbrella of their protection. The fact itself makes difficult fighting
with such a disease as trafficking.
