19 Romanians were arrested in Barcelona and near Valencia, suspect of detaining against their will 27 Romanian women. The women were forces to work or beg, the Spanish Interior Ministry announced on Friday, quoted by AFP.

The 27 Romanian women, sequestered in two apartments in Faura, near Valencia, were released by the Police. "The victims were recruited in Romania, where they were promised labor permits, then they were forced to work without pay", the release reads. Whenever they didn't have what to work, they were sent to beg.
