“The suspects hail mainly from western Slovakia: Sered, Galanta, Nitra, Zlate Moravce and the vicinity,” Michal Slivka, the Police Corps Presidium spokesman told the TASR newswire on April 23. “The victims come from a financially poor background, and were lured by prospects of better income to work in Great Britain.”
Instead of promised jobs, however, victims had their travel documents confiscated and were exploited, forced to work in bad conditions without pay, while exposed to physical abuse.
“We warn applicants for work abroad to be cautious when considering similar job offers, so as not to become victims of labour exploitation,” said Slivka.
