3 Edmonton men face charges for allegedly forcing girls into prostitution

EDMONTON – Three men are facing human trafficking and pimping charges after teen girls were lured into Edmonton’s prostitution underground in two separate cases.

Police say one man lured an underage girl to Edmonton from Saskatoon for the purpose of prostitution in July 2012.
When the girl arrived in the city, police say she was plied with alcohol and drugs including cocaine. But soon afterward, she allegedly learned the less scrupulous nature of her benefactors.

“Through online conversations with a third party, she came to Edmonton and basically was caught in a very difficult situation,” said police spokesman Scott Pattison, adding she was “sexually assaulted, beaten . . . and basically threatened and put into the sex trade industry.”

She eventually escaped a motel room where she was held against her will by asking her captors if she could go out to get a soft-drink.

They took her shoes but the girl, while intoxicated, went shoeless into the wintry conditions and was found by a passing motorist lying underneath a street lamp.

Ali Saghafi, 25, of no fixed address but also goes by the street name A.K., was arrested on Dec. 20, and is facing a number of charges including assault, sexual assault, unlawful confinement, trafficking of a person under the age of 18 years, procuring prostitution and living off the avails of juvenile prostitution.

In a second case, an 18-year-old woman was lured by another girl — a 16-year-old — to a motel where she was held captive and forced into prostitution by two men.

Police were alerted to the situation and began an investigation last week that led to the arrest of Hamid Fazli Ghejlou, 31, and Shahin Ranjbar, 23, on Thursday.

Ghejlou is facing numerous charges including trafficking in persons, procuring prostitution, living on the avails of prostitution of an adult and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Ranjbar is charged with trafficking with person, procuring prostitution, living on the avails of prostitution of an adult, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and assault.

Pattison said the underage girl is believed to be back home in Saskatoon but he could not comment on the condition of the 18-year-old from Edmonton.
Andrea Burkhart, an official with Alberta’s Action Coalition on Human Trafficking, says the recent cases are “the tip of the iceberg” in Edmonton.

“Many victims never come forward to law enforcement, because of fear or because they don’t know what their rights are,” said Burkhart.

    Tip of the iceberg?!!! Education, education, education! We must start talking about these issues and carefully consider the crimes and scrutinize the details, in order to establish a cohesive system of law and punishment, and perhaps we will also need to re-write some of the laws. Times have certainly changed and the circumstances of these crimes are certainly new: the birth of mass immigration, multiculturalism and religious moral authority (misconstrued or not), have certainly changed the milieu of the crime scene and its execution. We must not stand by and let this behavior continue. Mr. Andrew Norfolk of the (among others; I’m sure) has dedicated a large portion of his life to researching the trends and patterns associated with sexual abuse, and therefore, the findings of this investigative work should be made public and the realities should be brought to the attention of every law abiding citizen, whose deep seated values include the protection of children, and not just our own, and these such people will wake up and stop living in a world of denial, but they will be equipped, instead, to challenge the growing seed of corruption, which seeks to prey upon our most vulnerable and weak. I propose that we let the truth of the facts speak for themselves. If the perpetrators of these crimes present a measurable pattern, and we can identify it, then, these facts must be addressed openly, and articulately, thus making our communities safer; by an informed public who know what to look for, or whom to look for. The punishment for these crimes must be severe and the victims should not be forgotten; but be raised high in our social conscience as those who are loved and cherished, while the criminals fade into the ash of our memory, where they belong.
