GLAA arrests man in Coventry for suspected labour abuses

A man has been arrested by Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority officers on suspicion of modern slavery and human trafficking offences in Coventry.

In a statement released yesterday, the GLAA revealed the suspect, a Romanian national, is currently being questioned in custody after the GLAA received intelligence indicating that he had been trafficking and exploiting workers.

GLAA investigators were joined by neighbourhood officers from West Midlands Police at an address North of the city centre yesterday morning [20 November]. Searches of the property were also made by the GLAA, with evidence taken away to be analysed.

Investigations are ongoing to establish if there are any potential modern slavery victims in need of support.
