Trafficking of 12 Moldovian women has been prevented by Moldovan border guards. The women were escorted by a "lady coach" who told the guards they were going to Budapest (Hungary) for a "marathon running competition". Their ultimate destination seems to have been Italy where the charming girls most likely were intended for a 'prostitution marathon'.


Moldova Azi: 12 White Slaves Halted on the Border

June 21 2005


Moldovan border guards prevented the trafficking of 12 nationals of Moldova - women aged 20 to 28, who were heading to Europe under the leadership of a "lady coach".

She stated to the border officers she was escorting the girls to an international marathon running competition in Budapest. The only document she could produce was a strangely looking invitation to the sportive contest, which turned out to be a fake paper. The entire "team of athletes" did not have even a single sportive article about them, but everyone had phrasebooks of Italian.

The officers believe the vehicle's ultimate destination was Italy where the charming girls were intended for a 'prostitution marathon'. One of the first things they told the police was that the trip organizers had collected 2,500 to 2,700 euros from each of them.

No doubt this is a frequent occurance. Trafficking of women is a known problem in this area, as well as trafficking of drugs and weapons. Moldova is the poorest country in Europe in terms of GDP per capita.

Aha, they needed a "success" story now. To show Europe that they can manage the border control. Failure could mean EU entry delayed for Romania. And Moldova want to be friends with Europe.


BBC: EU spurs Romanian border action

21 June, 2005



Romania's border controls are a key area of concern for the European Union, as the country gets itself into shape to join the bloc on 1 January 2007. Failure to raise standards could mean EU entry is delayed, but progress is gradually being made, Anca Toader of the BBC's Romanian Service reports.

Neighbouring Serbia, Ukraine and Moldova all have a reputation as transit hubs for smuggled goods and people. The biggest challenge is posed by Romania's eastern border with Moldova, which is a source of illegal migrants including women trafficked for prostitution to western Europe.

Moldova is not the only place, this goes on everywhere.
Prostitution is a definate problem in the old warsaw pact and soviet countries. Many Russian, Moldovian, Ukraine etc..etc... women are exported all across Europe and Asia to act as slaves in the sex industry.

Very sad IMO

And the sad thing is that is has been going on in that part of the world for GENERATIONS.

The term most English-speakers use for that great ethnic group is "Slav"


So guess where the English word "Slave" comes from . . . .

Mmm Slavic comes from old English, deriving from the Romance side of the language, and is Sclave, deriving perhaps from Sclovus, which means to be a member of a language or speech....

In my best guess, what this would imply is that the Slavic Tribes where varied and had their own sub languages, essentially meaning an ethnicity that was wide spread and spoke many languages (people of many languages?)

However, in Latin, Sclavus was also the root word for Slave, and the English word Serf. It could be that the word Sclavus was adopted for Slaves in the Roman Empire because many of the slaves came from Germania, Gaul, and the Baltic (Slavic region) .. Essentially the slaves where from a vast veriety of regions, spoke numerous languages and where thus, people of many languages.

So whether the word Slave derives from the description of the slaves as matching the same definition as the Slav's is really unknown ... Rome nor did any one else, really use Slavic people specifically for slavery.. Roman slaves could be Roman.. and they came from all over..

But that is just how languages progress...

Take Celtic for instance.. Celtic is Celtoi in Greek and means Barbarians ..

Even though England was the only one to conquer Hibernia.. which is in it's self Greek ... oddly it means "winter like" lol ... any ways it would appear at some point in history some prominent Greeks ran into some unruly Irishmen and the name stuck, declaring them savage cannibals.

That was a good bit of information. I was stationed in Korea for a while. I don't know if any of you know about that area and girls from the Philippines but I would have to guess that it's about the same.

The article mentioned that they all paid for this trip. I can only assume the they were being lied too about their destination. That's pretty much how it happened in Korea. I don't want to get into details here but things happen.

Here's a fresh video from Al Jazeera.



Moldovan women fear entrapment in sex trade - 07 Feb 09

Moldova is experiencing a growth in its sex trade - with children increasingly being involved. Every year hundreds of women and children are taken out of Moldova and forced into trade. And now, accusations that officials in the Moldovan government are involved in the trade have arisen. From Moldova, Al Jazeera's Stephen Cole reports.

What a world we live in. These young girls and boys most likely are the saddest vicims of our current societies, world governments and human failures.

It is easy to watch a video of the horrific end these people face in the trafficing business as long as it does not affect you personally. It is the lowest form of desensitization to know of this happening and yet know you are powerless to make a difference.

This is part of the reason there needs to be a real one world responsibility for humanity.

There are also reports of this going on in Latin America, the Caribbean, and right here in the good ol USA ... sex slave kidnapping was one of the Natalee Halloway disappearance theories - blonde White girls are highly prized in the sex slave business especially in Latin America.
