Cuba international ladies dating site 2016
One of the women said she met Morales in Honduras when he was introduced as a smuggler who could get her to the United States, according to the court documents.
But once here, court documents say, the terms changed.
Morales, AKA “Jander” and “Silvito,” increased the debt to $55,000 and forced them into prostitution, according to court documents. Most of them, like Morales, are from Camagüey province in eastern Cuba.
They also declined to say whether Cuban authorities are cooperating with the investigation.
Two of Morales’ victims escaped from the apartment in the Allapattah neighborhood of Miami on Sept.
Prosecutors charge that 31-year-old Silvio Clark Morales — who faces trial later this month on 16 charges, including sexual trafficking and exploitation of women — offered to guide the women out of Cuba and find them jobs as strippers in Miami, promising they would not have to have sex with clients.
In return, the women agreed to pay him 0 a day of their earnings until they paid off the ,000.
The documents show he traveled to Cuba to meet the women, some of whom he first made contact with via Facebook.
In one case, Morales picked up one woman in Cuba and “transported her to a boat” that took her and a dozen other people to Cancun in Mexico, the documents said.
They left Cuba in 20, amid an exodus from the island that has been increasing since the Obama administration announced a change of its policies toward Cuba.
The legal documents in the case, first reported by Univisión 23, a news partner of el Nuevo Herald, indicate that Morales did not work alone and moved easily between Florida and Cuba, and perhaps Mexico and Central America as well.
