Susana Trimarco was recently confirmed as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize, in recognition for her fight against human trafficking in Argentina. The mother of Maria of Los Angeles (Marita) Veron, who disappeared nine years ago, Trimarco said to LV7 Tucumán Radio that the recognition gives her a “flood of emotion and force. I am content but on the other hand sad. Thus it is my life, but I must come out ahead.”

Who is Susana Trimarco?

Susana Trimarco is the mother of Marita Veron, a young Argentinean who was kidnapped in Tucumán on April 3, 2002 and apparently forced into prostitution. Marita’s baby girl was only two years old when her mom went to a gynecologist appointment. They never met again. According to a witness, Marita was pulled into a red car and gone forever.

Susana Trimarco was devastated and turned to raising her granddaughter. But she also felt that she couldn’t just wait for the police to find her daughter, so she began visiting brothels dressed as a prostitute, trying to find Marita.
