Brazil: A mother and her daughter were held captive for 6 years

For six years, a mother and daughter were held captive on a farm in northeastern Brazil until they escaped and were rescued by police. The 44-year-old woman and her 21-year-old daughter were found on the side of the road on Tuesday night in the remote city of Floriano as they waved their hands desperately calling for help to a federal police patrol. Police officer Alexandro Lima told Noticias UOL that the unit was in the area after a call from a friend of the mother who revealed the shocking conditions in which the two women were living. “In their attempt to escape, they hid in a school on the side of the road. When the police arrived, they were told about the situation they were in. The two women had arrived at the farm around 2015 and have since been barred from leaving.

The women said the landlord did not fulfill his commitment to give them a minimum wage or provide them with food for their services, as they had taken care of his house. In fact, it is reported that they were forced to clean the farm but they could not bathe on the premises because this was only allowed to their bosses. The two women planned their escape with the help of a friend after they managed to recover personal items that had been taken from them. The documents were intended to be used to secure emergency aid provided by the government due to the pandemic. The two women were placed in the care of a Special Social Welfare Center. Police are investigating the owner of the farm.
