The Mossos d'Esquadra (Catalunya's regional police force) have freed a 27-year-old woman, who had been kept prisoner in her house for the past 18 months.

The woman's 39-year-old husband has kept her locked inside the house they share in Calle de Joan Fiveller in Viladecans and has not let her out for the past year and a half.

The Mossos d'Esquadra received information last Thursday, suggesting that the woman might be being kept inside the house against her will moved in today after assessing the situation.

They found the woman with access to just the kitchen and the bathroom, with the rest of the house closed off with chains and padlocks.

An interpreter had to be brought in because the woman, of North African origin, was unable to express herself in either Catalan or Castilian.

The police were eventually able to ascertain that the woman had been kept locked in the house by her husband for the past 18 months.

The victim was taken to hospital in Viladecans where she was given a full medical examination before the local authorities took her to a women's shelter.

Mossos d'Esquadra arrested the victim's husband on Saturday and he has been charged with unlawful imprisonment.
