  9. “My ‘prince charming’ promised me a better life in Holland. I could leave behind a life of poverty and family problems. But I couldn’t fathom that I would be exploited by a criminal network. My ‘prince’ was a monster. And I lived a nightmare. I had to work in a cheap brothel in Germany near the Dutch border. I had terrible problems with STDs [sexually transmitted diseases]. I also worked in a fancy mansion close to Amsterdam, with drugs, alcohol and wealthy clients. My body, my soul … my life belonged to a group of criminals who blackmailed me, threatened to kill me and were always saying they could harm my family back home.” Trafficking victim - UNODC
