A child sex trafficking ring has been uncovered in Sydney, with a 19 year old woman arrested and her 22 year old sister rearrested (after already being accused of charging men money to engage in sexual acts with two young girls, 12 and 13 years of age). With another five girls believed to be involved between the ages of 12 and 16.
Police believe this operation has been running for a minimum of two years, with Liverpool Local Area commander Ray King, a police officer for a long time, saying he has never been so disgusted over what detectives have uncovered.
“These are children that have been abused and manipulated,” Superintendent King told reporters on Thursday.
“We don’t know how they will be in 20 years. It’s quite traumatic.”
Some of these girls would have been vulnerable and living on the streets
The younger sister is expected to be charged along with 3 male ‘customers’.
This is a worldwide travesty against our children, young teen girls and women, this has to stop!
We are supposed to be the lucky country, yet these kids are far from lucky. This trade of girls’ and women’s bodies and souls has to stop, everywhere. These are human beings. As a collective we need to start healing women instead of destroying us. As a collective we need to take a good look at this society’s overt sexualisation of women and girls and see where it is getting us. We live in the 21st century, we are supposed to be civilised. And as a society we need to listen to these women and girls, we need to hear them and do what we can.
Friday 25th may – Police have charged them with a total of 50 sexual assault, child sex and child prostitution offences dating back to November 2008.
