Ottawa - Canada's federal police announced Wednesday the arrests of several people they say formed a criminal organization involved in the smuggling of people of Romanian origin into Canada.
The most recent was the arrest in the morning of Marius Trifu Miclescu, 38, in Canada's Quebec province for the alleged sexual exploitation of young Romanian women in erotic massage parlors in Montreal.
Miclescu is charged with procuring, human trafficking and living on the avails of prostitution.
“The four victims of Romanian origin were coerced and threatened to keep them under the control of the network,” the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement.
Serafin Cirnaru, 39, from Toronto, who allegedly planned the illegal smuggling into Canada of several Romanian families was arrested last month.
Five others have also been arrested and charged in Canada and the United States in the case and a sixth is being sought by police.
