This Tuesday, he began the trial against Miguel Ángel Aramayo (29) for human trafficking, since he bought a young woman when he was 14 years old and brought her to San Juan. In the Roma community, this type of maneuvering is considered common but according to the Penal Code it is a crime and can face a penalty of 10 to 15 years in prison.
“We have to consider that not only was there trafficking in persons but that there was a concurrence of crimes, since the identity of the victim and the minors was changed. We are faced with serious human rights violations,” said prosecutor Francisco Maldonado.
The prosecutor assured that they are not against the traditions of the communities but “neither can they be allowed to go against the Penal Code.” They obtained a trout birth certificate and went to the Civil Registry to place the surname on the babies of that person and not the true surname of the mother, “he stressed.
The crimes attributed to Aramayo (her father was also accused but died) were reported by the girl’s mother on January 6, 2017. The woman arrived from Entre Ríos when the minor, then 17 years old, ran away until a neighbor, who lent her internet and was able to ask for help, because until then she had no telephone, she was excessively controlled, punished and annulled in her maternal role by her partner’s family, according to the indictment.
In her defense, Aramayo said that the girl always had freedom for everything and that the trucho ID was also a maneuver perpetrated by her.
