Germany: 7 arrested in raids on sex traffickers

German authorities raided dozens of properties and arrested seven people on Wednesday in an investigation of an alleged trafficking ring set up to bring Thai women and transsexuals to Germany to work as prostitutes.

Raids on 62 properties were conducted across Germany in what the country’s federal police force said was its biggest such operation ever, involving more than 1,500 officers. Prosecutors in Frankfurt said the chief suspects are a 59-year-old Thai national and her 62-year-old German partner, who are suspected of setting up the network.

Officials say the couple ran three brothels in Siegen, in western Germany. The Thais, who entered the country on fraudulently obtained tourist visas, were initially put to work there as prostitutes before being sent on to other towns, prosecutors said.
