A beauty queen is fighting extradition proceedings in Madrid to Mexico, where she faces charges of human trafficking after allegedly recruiting women to work as hostesses who were then later forced to have sex with criminals.
Mexican authorities have been demanding the extradition of Yorbriele Ninoska Vásquez Alvarez since August 2021 over allegations that she recruited young women to participate in an ‘Electronic Music Festival’ in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
Also at the event were drug lords, and it is alleged that the former beauty queen who, was Miss Earth Venezuela 2017, helped recruit two people after making them job offers as “hostesses”, when what was really the plan was “to force them to practice prostitution for her benefit”.
According to the indictment, “once their trust had been gained” and they had taken the jobs, they were then forced at their hotel to have sex with men with the beauty Queen paid for organising it.
However, she is fighting extradition since she was arrested in Madrid, claiming that the charges were made up by her wealthy Mexican businessman ex-boyfriend Javier Rodriguez Borgio after she dumped him and fled the country.
Mexican authorities turned to Interpol to track her down and she claims that she fled after he issued threats against her and her family when she dumped him in 2020 after a five-year relationship.
He is reportedly one of the 10 wealthiest people in Mexico, and owner of the Big Bola Foundation as well as 38 casinos in several Mexican states, and is also on the Forbes list of billionaires.
The lawyer read some of the messages that the businessman had apparently written to her, including one in which he allegedly wrote: “I am everywhere, and I will see you in jail, I will find the best lawyers in Mexico, this time I am not playing. Interpol is looking for you, go to Venezuela, but never leave there again. If I find you, you will spend the next 25 years in prison.”
