They stole the woman’s documents after arriving to Austria

They allegedly lured the women to Austria with promises of work, then stole their documents upon arrival and forced them into prostitution in brothels. The exact number of victims is unknown, but police believe the ring operated from late 2021 through early 2024.

Victims would often arrive in Vienna legally, then file asylum claims to gain work rights. Authorities believe the women might have initially known their reasons for traveling to Austria but were coerced upon arrival.

Raids resulted in the arrests and seizure of evidence. Despite most suspects denying involvement, one man reportedly admitted to some details corroborated by the evidence. Police fear other victims or witnesses may be afraid to come forward. The investigation is ongoing.
