Under the guise of a massage center, prostitution is practiced, and drugs are even sold to clients. At work, the owners of these so-called massage centers also take minors and use them for the pleasures of the customers.

Everything is carried out without any hindrance from the state, even the latter ensure the continuity of this type of prostitution by means of cash payments.

After the latest denunciation in Fiks Fare, another interview broadcast on Thursday evening sealed what this show has been denouncing for a long time.

A former sex worker in these massage centers recounted in an interview what happens inside the walls of these centers, the way of recruitment, payments, sale and consumption of narcotics, but above all the cooperation of the owners of these centers with the leaders of the State Police .

Girl: I'm Erika, I came to your show because of the video that came out a few days ago. That of prostitution in massage centers. I am a former employee and I worked for a year as a sex worker in one of these centers. I worked at the Paris Municipality center for about 8-9 months.

These massage centers worked quietly because the police did not harass them. The girl tells how the owners cooperated with police officers, how they paid them. The girl makes strong accusations and mentions many names in this confession of hers. Fiks Fare will make the full confession of the girl available to the prosecution and the police in order not to compromise the investigation.

Fiksi - Have you ever seen the police taking money inside the center, or the way they pay the police?

She often told us in the communication she had with A... to give us assurance that the police are not harassing you. And he was telling us that he is going to see the boss to give him the payment. Keep up the quiet work. And in fact we have had no problems.

Fiction – What did these police officers or leaders offer them?

Girl - Security. That we wouldn't end up appearing in the news, or ending up in jail, nothing. Even in the directorate, when they took us, they kept us for even 30 minutes and let us go again half of the time they found us clean.

Fiksi - For the 1 year you worked there, how many times did they accompany you to the directorate?

Girl3-4 times. The only reason was the denunciations of the residents of the building where the center is located. We kept very little, went out and returned to the center and continued working normally until 2 in the morning.

The girlThey came to clean themselves, that is, we came that the denunciation was made, but they found nothing. Normally because they would notify K… (the owner) and she would take us to warn us. We cleaned the area and waited for the policemen with open arms.

Fiction - Have you asked for help from the state?

Girl - Only Ardi Veliu answered me: Thank you for your trust and we will follow it. I have the messages on my phone. I also contacted Met Rrumbullaku, but I have not received an answer.

Girl - No, I have no fear. I have left this profession.

Fiksi – What are you looking for from Fiks Fare?

Girl - Asked Fiksi, to remain anonymous, and expose these people who have been convicted once for this criminal offense and still continue to exploit minor girls and enrich themselves with narcotics and exploitation of prostitution. I want you to do what the state is not doing./ tch
