En Loreto seguimos ocupando el segundo lugar en Trata de Personas

En el auditorio de la CSJLO se presentó libro El Proceso Penal en el delito de Trata de personas          

Ayer en el auditorio de la Corte Superior de Justicia de Loreto con la asistencia del presidente de la Junta de fiscales de Loreto, Mario Alberto Gallo Zamudio, del asesor de la presidencia de la Corte de Loreto, John Ancka Ikeda, la defensora del pueblo, Lizbeth Castro, así como representantes de la Policía Nacional y de otras instituciones ligadas al problema de la Trata de Personas. Asimismo se presentó el libro El Proceso Penal Peruano en el delito de Trata de Personas.

Ana Cecilia Romero, coordinadora de la oficina regional de CHS Alternativo, manifestó, hemos presentado un documental “La Noche de Gina” que es el caso de una víctima amazónica de Trata de Personas que fue  llevada con una falsa oferta laboral a Piura en donde fue víctima de explotación sexual durante varios años e inclusive salió embarazada, logrando finalmente escapar de esta explotación y esclavitud.

Sin embargo, no es acogida por las autoridades, ni tomaron su denuncia, pues cuando escapó ya era mayor de edad. Este es un caso que ha llegado inclusive a la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos y finalmente en el presente año ha sido considerado como Trata de Personas, por lo que existe un proceso judicial en contra de los tratantes por el delito de proxenetismo y otros delitos.

The Loreto region continues to rank second in Peru in Human Trafficking

Authorities and advocates who work in the fight against human trafficking recently held a forum in the auditorium of the Superior Court of the Loreto region of Peru.

Participating in the event were Mario Alberto Gallo Zamudio - president of the Loreto prosecutors board, John Ancka Ikeda - adviser to the president of the Court of Loreto,  Lizbeth Castro - the People’s Ombudsman, as well as representatives of the National Police and other institutions that work on the problem of human trafficking.  The book Peruvian Criminal Process in the Crime of Human Trafficking was also presented during the event.

Ana Cecilia Romero, coordinator of the CHS Alternativo [Human and Social Capital Alternatives] regional office, said, we have presented a documentary "The Night of Gina," that represents the case of a victim of human trafficking from Peru’s Amazonian region, who was entrapped through the use of a false job offer. ‘Gina’ went to the city of Piura, where she became a victim of sexual exploitation over a period of several years during which she became pregnant. Gina eventually escaped her life of exploitation and slavery.

Despite gaining her freedom, Gina’s case was ignored by the authorities, who refused to receive her criminal complaint because she was an adult at the time of her escape. Gina’s case has been presented before the Inter American Court of Human Rights. During 2011 the case has been interpreted as a case of human trafficking.  As a result, the traffickers involved in her case are facing charges of pimping and other, related crimes.

Detienen en Puebla a dos por delito de trata

Elementos de la Policía Federal, en coordinación con el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de Estados Unidos (ICE, por sus siglas en inglés) aseguró en el municipio de San Miguel Xoxtla, Puebla, a dos personas a quienes se les vincula con el delito de trata de personas y que son requeridos por la justicia estadounidense.

La corporación, de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública federal (SSP), informó que las personas detenidas son Benito N, identificado por las autoridades como "Rodolfo" y a Anastasio N, identificado como "Carlos", originarios de Tenancingo, Tlaxcala.

"Esta detención se llevó a cabo en el marco de la colaboración para el combate a la delincuencia que opera de manera trasnacional, contando con el intercambio de información con del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de los Estados Unidos, agencia con la cual se pudo confirmar que los detenidos son requeridos por una Corte Federal estadounidense, por su presunta responsabilidad en el reclutamiento de personas en México para trasladarlas de manera ilegal a dicho país con fines de explotación sexual", dijo la SSP.

De acuerdo con líneas de investigación de la corporación policiaca el modo de operar de los detenidos era mediante engaños, pues cortejaban a mujeres con quienes procreaban hijos.

"Posteriormente las obligaban a prostituirse y entregar una cuota de dinero cada semana, bajo la amenaza de que no verían a sus hijos en caso de no hacerlo".

Así y en seguimiento a las investigaciones, elementos de la Policía Federal detectaron la presencia de Benito N y Anastasio en Puebla, por lo que implementó un operativo de búsqueda y localización en el municipio de San Miguel Xoxtla, donde fueron detenidos.

Estas personas fueron internados… y puestos a disposición del Juez Decimoséptimo de Distrito de Procesos Penales Federales en el Distrito Federal, para continuar con la orden de extradición internacional 9/2011-IV.

El 7 de octubre pasado, la SSP informó que desarticuló en Tlaxcala una organización dedicada a la trata de personas con fines de explotación sexual que operaba en México y Estados Unidos, que reclutaba a sus víctimas en parques y centros recreativos; posteriormente mediante promesas y engaños las llevaban a Tlaxcala, Puebla y al Distrito Federal, donde las obligaban a prostituirse,

Two are arrested in transnational human trafficking case

Agents of the Mexican Federal Police in coordination with the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have detained two suspects in the town of San Miguel Xoxtla, located in Puebla state. The two men were being sought by U.S. authorities as suspects in human trafficking crimes. Benito N, identified by authorities as "Rudolph" and Anastasio N, identified as "Carlos", were arrested. Both men are from the city of Tenancingo [Mexico’s sex trafficking mega center] in Tlaxcala state.

These arrests took place within a [Mexican-U.S.] framework of cooperation to combat crime, and involved an exchange of information with ICE.

The U.S. is seeking the suspects for their alleged responsibility in the recruitment of people in Mexico for the purposes of smuggling them illegally into the U.S. for sexual exploitation, "said a spokesman for Mexico’s Secretariat for Public Security (SSP).

According to investigators, the suspects recruited their victims through the use of lies and deceit. Their victims were first courted, then convinced to have children with the suspects. “After that, they were forced to prostitute themselves and turn ovr a weekly quota of money to their pimps, under threat that they would could not see their children if they did not comply.”

Federal Police detected the presence of Benito N and Anastasio in Puebla, and proceeded to arrest them.

The suspects have been detained, and have been made available to the Seventeenth District Judge for Federal Criminal Proceedings in the Mexico City, where the international extradition warrant will be processed.

On October 7, 2011, the SSP said that it had dismantled a Tlaxcala state based sex trafficking ring that operated in Mexico and the United States. The traffickers recruited their victims in parks and recreation centers. Through the use of false promises, the victims were then taken to the states of Puebla and Tlaxcala, as well as to Mexico City, were they were forced to prostitute themselves.

MS-13 gang member sentenced to life in prison for child sex trafficking

Alexandria, Virginia – An El Salvadoran national and MS-13 gang member was sentenced to life in prison for prostituting a 12-year-old female to clients throughout northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. The sentence was the result of investigative work by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations' (HSI) Gang Unit with assistance from the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force.

Jose Ciro Juarez-Santamaria, 24, was convicted by a federal jury on July 28, 2011 for conspiracy, sex trafficking and transportation of a minor for prostitution.

"Mr. Juarez-Santamaria and his MS-13 accomplices had no regard for the human dignity of the young victim in this case," said John P. Torres, special agent in charge of the ICE HSI field office in Washington, D.C. "Cases like this demonstrate the importance of steadfast dedication by ICE HSI and the law enforcement community to protect the people of the D.C. metro area from transnational gangs and the criminal activity they perpetrate."

According to court records and evidence at trial, Juarez-Santamaria joined MS-13 while in El Salvador. He was a member of the Pinos Locos clique of MS-13 and known by the gang as "Sniper." At a Halloween party in Oxon Hill, Md., on Oct. 31, 2009, Juarez-Santamaria met a 12-year-old runaway who asked for his help in finding a place to stay. Instead, Juarez-Santamaria began prostituting the victim throughout the Washington D.C.-area the very next day.

The victim was prostituted from October to December 2009, providing sex for money every day of the week. Evidence at trial showed that Juarez-Santamaria generally charged $40 for 15 minutes of sex, but he would sometimes charge more depending on what the customer wanted. The prostitution took place at various businesses, homes, apartments and hotels in and around northern Virginia. Juarez-Santamaria also admitted to having sex with the victim and allowed MS-13 gang members to have sex with her free of charge. To keep the victim compliant, Juarez-Santamaria and others would supply her with alcohol and marijuana.

Founded in 2004, the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force is a collaboration of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies – along with nongovernmental organizations – dedicated to combating human trafficking and related crimes.

Deputy Rosi Orozco

hoto: Noticiero Milamex

Piden más recursos para combatir la trata

Ante el crecimiento de la explotación y el turismo sexuales en territorio mexicano, la presidenta de la Comisión Especial para la Lucha contra la Trata de Personas de la Cámara de Diputados, Rosi Orozco (PAN), demandó una ampliación presupuestal para destinar recursos a los estados, específicamente para prevención, combate y erradicación de este delito.

La legisladora federal dijo que se ha detectado el aumento de estas prácticas en Acapulco, Cancún, Tijuana y Ciudad Juárez, por el arribo de turistas sexuales de EU, Canadá y Europa.

Expuso que los recursos se requieren para capacitar, llevar a cabo programas concretos de combate a la trata de personas y desarrollar infraestructura que permita enfrentar el problema “con elementos científicos y tecnológicos”.

Por eso se pronunció por recursos etiquetados para esas tareas en el Presupuesto de Egresos de la Federación (PEF) 2012, y que “los estados contemplen recursos para la prevención, combate y erradicación de este delito, ya que continúa creciendo la explotación y el turismo sexual”.

Dijo que de acuerdo a la información con que cuenta, en las entidades del país se carece de recursos e infraestructura para la vigilancia, control y operación de sistemas de inteligencia en el combate de la trata de personas.

Opinó que si en verdad se pretende combatir ese delito, se les deben brindar los recursos suficientes.

Hace un año, recordó, la Coalición Regional contra el Tráfico de Mujeres y Niñas en América Latina tenía registrados un millón 200 mil personas víctimas de trata y por eso ubicó a México en el quinto lugar de América Latina. Se estima que de cada diez víctimas dos son menores de edad.

El organismo internacional estimó que nuestro país se ubica después de República Dominicana, Haití, Brasil y Argentina pero, indicó Orozco, el delito de trata de personas es minimizado por algunas autoridades debido a su ignorancia, indiferencia o complicidad, ya que es considerado como el tercer delito más redituable para el crimen organizado.

Algunas autoridades, dijo la legisladora, le dan poca importancia a los diagnósticos, estudios, recomendaciones y demanda de infraestructura para combatir a los tratantes y atender a las víctimas.

Es por esa situación que consideró indispensable invertir en capacitación de autoridades para hacer conciencia de que la trata de personas lesiona la dignidad de la persona y se expresa principalmente en la explotación laboral y sexual de menores y mujeres jóvenes de quince a veinte años de edad.

A call for more resources to combat trafficking

In response to the growth of exploitation and sex tourism in Mexico, the president of the Special Commission for Combating Trafficking in Persons of the Chamber of Deputies, Rosi Orozco (PAN), has demanded an expansion of the budget allocations for specifc states to allow them to prevent, combat and eradicate human trafficking crimes.

The federal lawmaker said that she has detected an increase these criminal activities in the cities of Acapulco, Cancun, Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez, driven by demand from sex tourists who are arriving from the United States, Canada and Europe.

Deputy Orozco explained that the resources will be required to train people and carry out specific programs to combat trafficking, and to develop infrastructure to tackle the problem "with scientific and technological support."

Orozco has therefore come out in favor of increases in the 2012 Proposed Budget of the Federation (PEF) 2012. She also called upon state officials to consider resources for prevention, control and eradication of these crimes, given the continual growth in sexual exploitation and sex tourism.

According to information available to Orozco, Mexico lacks the resources and infrastructure that are needed for the operation of the surveillance and intelligence systems that are needed to combat human trafficking.

Orozco exclaimed that, if the government says that they really want to fight human trafficking, then they should provide adequate resources to allow that to happen.

The congressional deputy recalled that one year ago, the Regional Coalition Against Trafficking in Women and Girls in Latin America  (CATW-LAC) had documented that 1.2 million victims of human trafficking exist in Mexico, placing Mexico in fifth place in numbers of victims among Latin American nations. It is estimated that 20% of these victims are minors. The CATW-LAC ranks Mexico after the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Brazil and Argentina.

Orozco added that human trafficking crimes are minimized by some authorities, despite the fact that it is regarded as being third most profitable activity for organized crime [after drug and arms smuggling].

She said that certain officials give little credence to the diagnostic studies, recommendations and the related demands to create the infrastructure that will be needed to fight the traffickers and assist victims.

Deputy Orozco therefore believes that an investment in training for government officials and authorities is essential to raising their awareness of the damage that sex and labor trafficking inflicts on the dignity of its victims, who are typically girls and young women between the ages of 15 and 20.

Women Reject Normalization of Gender Violence

Lydia Cacho Ribeiro receives death threats on a regular basis.

New York, New York - Ninety percent of the non-governmental organizations in Mexico are founded and run by women, says journalist and women's rights activist Lydia Cacho Ribeiro, even as crimes against women remain cloaked in impunity.

Cacho was recently in New York, where she was awarded the Civil Courage award from the Train Foundation, and also spoke at a special event hosted by Columbia University.

When Felipe Calderón became president in 2006, he deployed the military in a federal offensive against drug cartels and criminal groups, resulting in a virtual war in which more than 40,000 people have died. In 2010 alone, the death toll exceeded 15,000, according to Reporters Without Borders.

Human rights abuses and violence against women are widespread in Mexico, perpetrated by all actors in society, including the military and police.

Nine out of 10 women in Mexico who suffer human rights violations do not report it to the authorities, and "those who (do) report them are generally met with suspicion, apathy and disrespect", according to Human Rights Watch's latest country report.

"The normalization of gender violence is increasing incredibly," Cacho said.

Even though some legal measures have been put in place to prevent and punish gender-based violence, the implementation has been very limited and impunity remains the norm for murder or other crimes against women, according to human rights groups.

However, Cacho stressed that there is a growing feminist movement in Mexico to empower women and to discuss gender violence, including that perpetrated by the military.

"The problem right now in Mexico, regarding this discussion, is that the Mexican government is so obsessed with the media, with the main media that is pretty much linked with war discourse, that everything has to do with the war against drugs. And they won't talk about human rights (even) if we want to take back the conversation about gender violence," she said.

The issue is especially difficult since many of the same people responsible for public safety are also responsible for human rights violations.

Cacho said the military is involved in abuses such as human trafficking, and police occasionally attack women's shelters, either because they have a personal connection to a woman in the shelter or because they want to protect the traffickers.

Ten years ago, she founded such a shelter for women and their children who are fleeing various kinds of gender violence, called the Women's Assistance Centre (Centro Integral de Atención a la Mujer) in Cancún. It started mainly as a refuge for victims of domestic violence, but it soon became clear that most of the women had been involved in trafficking, especially forced prostitution.

The centre now has high security, with a barbed wire fence and cameras everywhere to keep the women safe.

Cacho recounted how the shelter was attacked by police who came to retrieve the wife of a policeman, whom she had helped to flee an abusive situation. The police didn't get inside, and the attack was caught on film, but when Cacho sought accountability and showed the tape to the district attorney, she said he told her "that there isn't much we can do, (and) the best thing you can do is just to close down".

Perseverance in the face of death threats

In the last decade, 80 journalists have been killed in Mexico, according to Reporters Without Borders, and many journalists and human rights defenders have been forced to flee the country or censor themselves.

Cacho chose to do neither. She has investigated gender violence and sex trafficking and published numerous stories and books on the subject. Her 2005 book "The Demons of Eden" exposed an international child pornography and sex trafficking ring in Cancún which involved senators and politicians.

She was thrown in jail and tortured for publishing that book. When she finally came out and started talking, the government tried to label her a terrorist, but without success. She traveled for six years to investigate the world of international sex trafficking of women, resulting in her latest book "The Slaves of Power" in 2010.

Together with non-governmental organizations and a grassroots activist network, Cacho started a prevention campaign called "No estoy en venta" - "I am not for sale" - against sex trafficking that includes a video to give young people tools they need to protect themselves. The video explains anti-trafficking laws, the tactics traffickers use to lure their victims, and other aspects of the issue.

"It is getting away from discourse of fear and moral panic and all this (crap) and going back to the discourse of 'you have the power of the information, use it for your own good and how to protect yourself and other kids in school'," she stressed.

But her fight has not come without a price. Cacho told IPS that she has a lengthy checklist of safety strategies she must adhere to in her daily life because of the threats she receives, such as using a different name to make hotel reservations when she travels and constantly switching phone cards.

"I guess right now in Mexico my biggest challenge is to stay alive," she said…
