Nottingham man arrested for suspected human trafficking

Investigators from the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority have arrested a man in Nottingham in connection with an alleged modern slavery offence of human trafficking for labour exploitation.

The 50-year-old Romanian national was apprehended on Monday at an address in the Radford area of the city following a joint operation with Nottingham City Council’s Safer Housing Team and Nottinghamshire Police.
Three other Romanian men, aged 41, 44 and 28, who have been recovered from the same property and are being held at a temporary reception centre, could be passed through the Government’s National Referral Mechanism for victims of human trafficking.
The workers had been brought to the UK about a month ago on the promise of well-paid jobs in a large distribution warehouse, but have been receiving only a fraction of the wages they were due to have earnt.
GLAA senior investigating officer Dave Powell said: “Labour exploitation and workers living in unlicensed rental properties often go hand-in-hand, so we arranged a safe-guarding visit, along with our colleagues from the city council, to check on the safety of both the property and those housed within.
“As a result, we have uncovered what appears to be an organised criminal operation established to exploit workers for profit, and we now have a suspect in custody who will be investigated on suspicion of trafficking offences.”
