Arrests made following GLAA operation in Coventry

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery offences following a Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) operation in Coventry.

In a statement, released this morning, the GLAA revealed their officers arrested two Indian men at addresses North and East of the city centre this morning (13 September).

A Romanian man has been rescued and has entered the government’s National Referral Mechanism, a framework for ensuring potential modern slavery and human trafficking victims receive the support they need.

The GLAA acted following allegations from the potential victim that the suspects had been controlling his behaviour through keeping his ID, withholding his wages and even threats of violence.

Both suspects are currently in custody and enquiries are ongoing to identify any further victims.
