Argentine police have arrested a referee for his suspected involvement in a child prostitution ring with players from a football club’s youth team.
Police said they arrested Martin Bustos on Saturday in the town of Tigre north of Buenos Aires.
The Independiente team filed a complaint with prosecutors earlier this week after one of the abused players broke down during a session with a psychologist.
The player revealed alleged abuses and said he maintained sexual relations with men in exchange for money.
He said that players were recruited to the prostitution ring by another team member.
