GLAA rescue modern slavery worker in Bradford

A Polish man believed to have been trafficked to the UK and exploited has been rescued by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) in Bradford.

In a statement released this morning, the GLAA revealed the man has been accepted into the National Referral Mechanism, a government framework for ensuring potential victims of modern slavery and human trafficking are given the help and support they need.

GLAA officers carried out the operation with West Yorkshire Police last Thursday (7 March) after receiving intelligence indicating that the potential victim had been brought over to the UK in 2018 with the promise of lucrative work.

However, instead it is alleged that his wages were controlled and he received only £50 a week for his work in the food processing sector.

Another Polish man was arrested on suspicion of modern slavery and human trafficking offences, questioned and released under investigation pending further enquiries.
