Two Polish police officers were among 16 people arrested on suspicion of involvement in human trafficking in a bust of a major prostitution ring in Vienna.

Authorities said the arrests stemmed from the enslavement of 440 women who were taken to Austria to work in the sex industry.

Police said the ring involved five Vienna-based escort agencies and that those arrested were from Austria, Romania and Poland.

The network earned an estimated €11m in commissions for luring the women to Austria, said officials with the Federal Criminal Investigations Office.

Police did not release the names of the two Polish officers or specify what roles they allegedly played in the women’s recruitment.
