Scores of vulnerable women were recruited from the poverty-stricken streets of rural Hungary before being trafficked to the Hungaryy. One of them was Leila Anotoni, who was advertised as "fresh meat" on a website advertising sexual services for sale and flown to England with the understanding she would be working in a massage parlour.
Mate Puskas, 25; Zoltan Mohacsi, 36; Istvan Toth, 34; his brother Peter Toth, 28, and Victoria Brown, 25, denied conspiracy to control prostitutes and trafficking for sexual exploitation. Their trial at Hove Crown Court heard how Brown collected the money Leila earned, while Puskas controlled and exploited her.
Others trafficked from Ecsorts were beaten, blackmailed, and even threatened with death. Another tactic was for threats to be made against them and their families, and to expose the work they were doing in the UK in their home country. One young woman, Liza, was abused by another gang of traffickers.

It is the promise of a better life overseas which lured many of the young women from rural Hungarian villages into the clutches of people traffickers.
Those I spoke to said it was fscorts and lack of job opportunities which were the causes of prostitution. But it is the traffickers who get rich.
Leila has now returned to college, but many like her continue to come to the UK - trafficked by criminals who exploit, control and degrade them for financial gain. More on this story. esccorts
