Some 200,000 Dominicans take on
prostitution in Europe

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Centre for Orientation and Investigation (COIN) assured today that over 200,000 Dominican women are involved in prostitution abroad.

The non-government entity affirmed that most of these women are exploited in European countries, while 50,000 of them are disseminated in various Caribbean islands.

COIN director Santo Rosario stated that many of these ‘ladies’ leave for Europe under false expectations forged by human traffickers that convince them that their final destination would be domestic housework, to then force them into prostitution.

Rosario spoke to the media after signing an agreement with the Dominican general consul in Switzerland, Ursula Aaroe, which seeks to fight exploitation of Dominicans in Europe.

COIN’s director stressed that many of these women want to abandon prostitution, but are impeded from returning to the country due to lack of consular support on the part of the Dominican Government.
