Two Yugoslavs arrested for trafficking in women to Bosnia
Agence France Presse, December 5, 2000

BELGRADE (AFP) -- Yugoslav police have arrested two men for allegedly
organising the illegal immigration of young women into the Bosnian Serb
entity, Republika Srpska (RS), Belgrade media reported Tuesday.

The daily Politika reported that police arrested Mladen Dalmacija and
Zdravko Lakovic, both Yugoslavs, in an operation that also netted 17
women,
mostly minors, from Moldova and Romania who were to be illegally
transferred to the RS to work in bars.

Dalmacija, working with partners in Romania, received 500 German marks
(240
dollars) for each girl he had managed to transfer to the RS, the daily
said.

Police found false passports and other documents with the women, who
were
expected to be expelled from Yugoslavia.
