45 Women Rescued from Traffickers in Dominican Republic

SANTO DOMINGO – Forty-five Venezuelan and Colombian women were rescued from alleged sex traffickers in the northern Dominican city of Licey al Medio, the Attorney General’s Office said Friday.

The women were being sexually exploited at the Night Casa Blanca club, according to an official statement.

Juan Antonio Fernandez, Magdalena Batista, Jairo Castillo Carrera and Venezuelan national Jose Ramirez Jolvert were arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.

The investigation is ongoing, prosecutor Luisa Liranzo said.

Police confiscated multiple unlicensed guns found at the club, including a military-grade weapon.

The rescued women remain under the care of authorities.
