Two Women Arrested as "Madams" - Using Minors for Sex

Crime & PunishmentBy Elio Núñez for El Siglo - Two Panamanian women aged 40 and 28 years old were arrested this week by PTJ detectives of the Specialized Sex Crimes Section in the District of Arraiján for their presumed participation as pimps or madams. The PTJ said the arrests came after a concerned parent of one of the adolescents involved in the case exposed the women to detectives, who then began an official investigation. The supposed Madams operated in several bars in Chorrera, Arraiján, as well as other places in Panama City, using adolescent girls of between 15 to 17 years of age. The women recruited the girls by offering them a percentage of the money. (more)

In addition, the PTJ said that the modus operandi of both women consisted of offering, with the minor girls, sexual pleasure to both Panamanian as well as foreign men. They would take the men back to a hotel room.

Once in the room they would offer drinks and drug the men without their knowledge, which would knock them out temporarily. The women then would take advantage of the situation to steal everything of value the men had.

The operational investigators and detectives of the PTJ, through searches, surveillance, and operational investigations, were able to successfully obtain proof and evidence related to the complaints which resulted in the arrests of both women. Both women were put to the orders of the competent authorities that decreed their detention.

This is the second case of this nature. The first occurred in the areas of Santa Ana and Curundú, where a subject used minors as prostitutes.

Dos mujeres panameñas de 40 y 28 años fueron aprehendidas esta semana por detectives de la Sección Especializada de Explotación Sexual de la Policía Técnica Judicial (PTJ), en el distrito de Arraiján, tras su presunta participación en el delito de proxenetismo.

Informes de la PTJ indican que las detenciones se registraron luego de que uno de los padres de las adolescentes involucradas expusiera el caso ante los investigadores, quienes iniciaron una investigación de oficio.

Y es que las supuestas proxenetas operaban en diversos bares de La Chorrera y Arraiján y otros lugares ubicados en la ciudad capital, utilizando adolescentes de 15 a 17 años, a quienes reclutaban ofreciéndoles un porcentaje de la ganancia.

Destacan además que el modus operandi de ambas mujeres consistía en ofrecer, junto a las menores, placer sexual a caballeros nacionales y extranjeros, a quienes conducían a hoteles o residenciales de la localidad. Estando en la habitación le suministraban pastillas en las bebidas, sin que estos lo supieran, quedando al poco rato inconscientes, situación que aprovechaban para despojarlos de todas sus pertenencias de valor.

Los investigadores de la entidad judicial a través de las pesquisas y diligencias operacionales, recabaron las pruebas relacionadas al hecho punible procediendo a la aprehensión. Ambas personas fueron puestas a órdenes de las autoridades competentes que decretaron su detención.

Se trata del segundo caso de esta índole, el primero se dio en los sectores de Santa Ana y Curundú, donde un sujeto utilizaba a menores como prostitutas.
