Bulgarian and Romanian prostitutes are being forced to eat Bulgarian specialty dishes while working on the Rue d'Aerschot in Brussels according to reports.
The Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure reported Sunday that the majority of the prostitutes who work on the infamous street in Brussels are Bulgarian or Romanian and that they are subject to food racketeering.
A number of ‘kitchens' a long the street allegedly prepare dishes such as ‘Musaka’ and ‘Rulo Stefani’ for which the prostitutes are forced to pay EUR 10 per portion. The newspaper reported that the Prostitutes have no choice because they were threatened not to refuse food offered to them, although it is cooked under very dubious conditions.
La Derniere Heure calculated that the mafia run racket earns roughly
€15,000 per month tax free.
