Interviews from the inside

OCCRP journalists conducted dozens of interviews with convicted criminals throughout Eastern Europe. The videos are an extension of the Jail Crunch visualization and provide a personal window into how crime works in the region. Every few weeks, OCCRP will release a new inmate interview shedding light on how common crimes work across Eastern Europe.

OCCRP travels to the countryside of the Republic of Moldova to speak with Viorica Ursa, a convicted human trafficker. She describes the dreams she once had which, along with the girls she helped traffic, met a sad fate.
