Loverboys' preying on teenage girls

18 May 2006

AMSTERDAM — Young pimps known as 'Loverboys' have found a new recruitment ground, centres for people with learning difficulties, according to radio programme.

The programme makers based their findings on interviews with various organisations that have encountered the phenomenon. It is not known how extensive the problem is.

The term loverboy is used to describe a young man - often Moroccan - who becomes romantically involved with a young woman to persuade her to work as a prostitute for him. There are ongoing campaigns in Dutch schools about these pimps who shower their 'girlfriends' with gifts and attention before forcing them into prostitution.

Radio programme

'De Ochtenden' uncovered accounts of loverboys masquerading as friends of young female residents. Young women living in individual residential units are preferred targets.

A staff member of a Amsterdam organisation told the programme how one pimp kept up the charade he was the boyfriend of one of the girls for weeks. "That at a certain stage we discovered that she was no longer going to school for two or three weeks, but was working behind a window in the Wallen [Amsterdam's Red Light district]."

The programme also established that the loverboys sometimes persuade a female to go to an establishment to seek new victims. "I know of one centre where three girls were recruited for prostitution in this way," Lou Repetur of Pretty Woman said. Pretty Woman is a foundation that offers help to girls exploited by loverboys.

Girls with mild learning difficulties make an attractive target for the pimps because they often lack the social skills and awareness of other girls their age. Some also come from difficult family backgrounds which makes them more vulnerable to manipulation.

The lies Joran made is a serious problem to the Queen. It torches the most fundamental honesty of the Kingdom. Bitter differences between Jassen and Beth had created tensions between Holland
and the United States. The Natalee case has introduced many crucial reforms needed for Aruba's own survival in this cyber world. The Queen was markedly blunt about the Aruba Prime Minister Odubar for his failed leadership, and he should resigned from his post immediately. Aruba shall hold a new election in August to elect a new Prime Minister by all the political parties. Judge Smid will be demoted by the Queen in the coming judgeship evaluation summit in Hague, to tackle the abuses of judgeship in the disputes and international uproar of releasing the three rapist muderer suspects of Joran, Deepak and Satish without a settling trial in court. Joran's lies have harmed the mechanism for spreading democracy, law, and order under the throne. the most severe punishment handled
down from the Dutch Peoples Court. The shortcomings of the ALE is under a microscopic appraisal to root out all the corruptions. The Dutch Elite and the local colored people poverty difference in
class struggle is a daunting disgrace to the Queen. It is such an epidemic that the Aruban people as a whole are silent and passive to the crime committed agaInst Natalee. The Hague Convention
Civil Commisioner and the Dutch Peoples Court Judge, by restoring the Aruba’s credibility, snapped a huge default civil judgement on the Aruban Government.
