In 1996 Eva was driven into the forest, stripped and gang-raped by 14 men who left her for dead. It was, she said, just one of the occupational hazards of working as a prostitute in Latvia. The flourishing sex industry in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia first took off when the Baltic countries gained independence from the Soviet Union and the economies crashed. Underage girls - earning more in a night on the street than a trained doctor does in a month - face physical and psychological risks, and Mafia involvement is growing.
