    The case dates back to last May when a woman escaped from a Dominican nationality bar “Las Vegas”, located on Osa, and told authorities that she was being sexually exploited and was forced under threats to remain on the premises.

    In Costa Rica the Anti-Trafficking regulation establishes punishments ranging from 4 to 16 years for various forms of this crime, such illegal organ trafficking, sexual exploitation, slavery, and forced labor, among others. (EFE)
