Police smash crime ring suspected of trafficking in women

By Jonathan Lis
Haaretz Correspondent

THE Israel Police International Crimes Unit announced Sunday [Sunday, October 31, 2004] that it had uncovered a crime ring suspected of trafficking in women.

Two Ukrainian women, who were smuggled into Israel across the Egyptian border, told police investigators that they were purchased by three suspects for $5,000 each and then imprisoned and forced to work as prostitutes. The women also claimed they were filmed against their will and that the video clips were posted on the Internet.

The suspects - Igor Adler, 31, and Michel Yaakobi, 24, of the Tel Aviv area and a Sergei Bloch, 32, a Moldovan citizen - were arrested a week ago and deny the allegations against them. The four will appear Monday in Tel Aviv District Court for a second remand hearing. Police want the men held in custody till the end of the proceedings against them.
