Child trafficking tourism racket busted in Peru

Published on : Saturday, December 12, 2015

Child sex tourism PeruJoshua David Brown, 64, an American has been accused by Peru police of facilitating sex tourism and exploitation of children for several years in South American countries.

 

He was allegedly accused of offering online assistance of sex acts with underage girls in Peru. This ring operated with support from locals in Peru and the U.S.

 

Six people involved in sex trafficking were arrested. 36 alleged victims were rescued which included 11 minors. One of the minor was only 4 years old and was offered $7,000 USD.

 

Brown acted as a matchmaker for his American friends visiting Peru for sex tourism. He however denies this accusation and says that his American friends used to marry his little friends in Peru and take them back to America.

 

Owing to the poverty level in Peru, human trafficking occurs throughout the country. Prostitution in nightclubs, bars and brothels is common. Sex tourism is highly practiced in Peru and children and young women from both rural and urban sections who are victims of poverty and domestic abuse often enter this profession. Those who lack literacy, birth certificates and identification documents are often found in this profession.

 

A Peruvian site named Peruvian Girls: Expert Advice on Peru Women markets its women to Americans, “Peruvian Women are absolutely wonderful.  They are so much more respectful, loving and feminine than their US counterparts.  Peruvian girls believe in taking care of their man.  I have had multiple Peruvian girls cook wonderful dinners for me.  I love the classic Peruvian dish, lomo saltado.  I’ve also had my apartment cleaned and my laundry done.  Peruvian girls are wonderful in bed.  They have great soft skin to compliment their petite yet voluptuous bodies.  Their strong feminine polarity just draws me to them.  I just want to hold them, love them, and protect them.  And I know in return they will treat me right.  Peru women really are something special.”

 

There is more shocking and explicit content marketing pornography and prostitution in the website. Another website claiming to be WikiSexGuide offers detailed division of various sex services that tourists or visitors would like to pick from.

 

Child sex is rampant in most South American countries and most prostitution dens offer child sex as their greatest draw to attract tourists. Children in Peru are falling prey to sex tourism due to more social and economic reason and a sheer lack of stringent law and order situation in the country.

 

The World Bank Board of Executive Directors approved US$50 million in financing to maintain 5,000 kilometers of rural roads and to rehabilitate 2,200 additional kilometers, with the intention of improving the country’s competitiveness and increasing access to markets and public services among poor and remote rural populations. The focus will be on improve the access of rural populations to health, education and market services; direct and indirect job creation and other income-generating opportunities; increase the agricultural sector’s productivity and income-generation via a reduction in travel times; and increase productive investments and job opportunities for residents of beneficiary communities, thus increasing household consumption rates and reducing poverty rates. Let us hope that more endeavors of this nature will help Peru to give its children a  more secure future.
