The Civil Guard acts against illegal eels platforms on the Guadalquivir river

18 complaints have been made and 16 fishing gears of the so-called "iron arms" have been disabled

23 nets have been seized to catch shrimp, 8 eel nets, 3 eel pots and 2 trammel nets

This illegal activity represents a serious threat to life, biodiversity, legal and regulated fishing, traffic and the safety of navigation at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river.

The Civil Guard has carried out the second phase of the "AVE FÉNIX" operation, to prevent the reactivation of illegal activity at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river, which represents a serious threat to life, biodiversity, legal and regulated fishing, traffic and safety of navigation and sometimes encourages drug trafficking.

18 complaints have been made and 16 fishing gears of the so-called "iron arms" have been disabled. 23 nets have been seized to catch shrimp, 8 eel nets, 3 eel pots and 2 trammel nets.

The illegal activity of these eel artifacts is carried out in a fishing reserve, declared a very sensitive biological and ecological zone, called the Bajo Guadalquivir breeding and fattening zone. Eel fishing is totally prohibited in the rivers and coastal waters of Andalusia, as an exceptional measure for the recovery of the European eel.

The presence in the river of these devices represents a danger to maritime safety and hinders navigation, in an area of ​​the narrow river, with little draft and sinuous lines, sometimes occupying the navigation channel in both directions to Seville .

These platforms used in some cases by criminal groups linked to drug trafficking, represent a serious risk for the FCSE, in its work to prevent illegal drug trafficking, the control and surveillance of this maritime route.

Commercial activity of extermination fishing

This commercial activity of extermination fishing, which is neither recreational nor cultural nor for subsistence, uses nets of 1mm mesh size, so that all the species that cohabit with the eel fall into this fishing gear, which has a particularly destructive efficacy for life in rivers. This work is carried out regardless of any current legislation, acting with total impunity in the face of any administrative sanction or civil liability that its devices may cause, since all of its assets and wealth are in the name of third parties.

The operation has been directed and developed by agents of the Civil Guard of the Cádiz Commandery with the collaboration of officials from the Fisheries Inspectorate of the Andalusian Government and officials from the Maritime Captaincy of Seville.

The agents managed to identify and arrest the author of the video, confirming that he had sexually abused a total of three girls – all of them from his family circle – in order to produce his own child pornographic material.
His arrest allowed officers to identify his "mentor," another pedophile with high standing and reputation in pedophile community forums for his cunning and unscrupulousness.

The Civil Guard releases 8 victims of human trafficking for the purpose of labor exploitation

Two people have been arrested and two others have been investigated. The investigation is still open

The investigation has been carried out jointly with the Lithuanian Police, who alerted the Civil Guard that several of their nationals could be being exploited in the province of Valencia.

The actions have been oriented towards the protection and assistance of victims exploited by traffickers who form international criminal networks and who take advantage of the special vulnerability of these people.

The cooperation of the entrepreneurs has been essential for the success of the investigation and the final arrest of the authors.

The Civil Guard, together with the Lithuanian Police, has developed an investigation that is still open and that has allowed the arrest of two people for the commission of crimes of trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labor exploitation and the release of eight victims. Both the detainees and the victims, who were employed in agricultural fruit harvesting campaigns, are of Lithuanian origin.

The organizations captured their victims using their vulnerability (ignorance of the language, scarce economic resources, social isolation, etc …), processed the documentation, personal and bank, and mediated for their contracting with the fruit harvesting companies. However, later and under threat and with the aim of preventing the complaint and limiting their ability to flee their situation, they kept their bank cards and cards, in addition to employment contracts and personal documentation.

The two detainees (a man and a woman) subjected the victims to tight control, provided them with accommodation in subhuman conditions, inflicting physical mistreatment, threats, coercion and emotional abuse. In addition, they made fraudulent use of the cards in their bank accounts to extract the money from their wages.

The collaboration offered by the company for which the victims worked has been fundamental to the success of the operation, which was unaware of the conditions to which they were subjected by the traffickers after the end of the working day, providing documentation and data that have been essential for the development of it.

The eight victims who have been released and identified, are between 29 and 44 years old, and have already been assisted and housed with the collaboration of the NGO Cruz Blanca, which has also taken charge of legal advice to them.

Three registries have been carried out in which numerous personal documentation of the victims has been intervened (national identity documents of their country, as well as NIE applications), notepads about work and what they were paid, cards and cards banking; more than € 10,400 in cash from wages withheld from victims and a van.

Trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labor exploitation

The agrarian sphere is one of the sectors where criminal groups dedicated to trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labor exploitation try to carry out their activity.

Especially sensitive are the different campaigns to collect agricultural products on farms, which generate a great demand for temporary workers concentrated in seasonal periods.

Trafficking organizations capture their victims through deceit, being usually foreigners (community and from third countries) who are already in Spain or directly in their countries of origin to be exploited and illicitly benefit from their work in the field.

Action of the Civil Guard before Trafficking

Trafficking in human beings, in any of its aspects, constitutes a priority for the Civil Guard and its comprehensive action capabilities make it an international benchmark in the fight against this phenomenon.

In addition to working together with institutions and organizations such as the UN, the Council of Europe or EUROPOL, taking as a special orientation the consideration of the Human Trafficking as one of the priority areas (EMPACT) of the Political Cycle of the European Union, it also collaborates bilaterally with police agencies and bodies from different countries, in this case with the Lithuanian Police.

On the other hand, the Civil Guard faces its action towards the protection, assistance and recovery of victims, for which it works with the essential help of the institutions and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) of social assistance.

During the year 2020, the Civil Guard has carried out, together with the Labor and Social Security Inspection, a total of 471 preventive inspections in places where there may be victims of labor or sexual exploitation, or human trafficking for such purposes. They have also carried out 10 investigations, in which a total of 55 victims have been released and 29 traffickers have been detained.
