Support to action against forced prostitution of female victims in Romania and UK

Authorities in Romania and the United Kingdom have taken decisive action against a criminal network which exploited female victims for sexual purposes in Northern Ireland, using the so-called ‘lover-boy method’. During a joint action day, 11 suspects were arrested. Eurojust provided financial support to set up a joint investigation team (JIT) and organised judicial cross-border cooperation.
