A socially disadvantaged Roma girl from Slovakia was promised a job in the Scottish city of Glasgow and she set out abroad only to find out that there was no job and that she couldn't return home either, the BBC reported on May 10.

"It was only when she was there that they told her she was engaged to a Pakistani," Angelika Molnárová of the Europol unit for fighting against human trafficking told the BBC. "After marrying, they [the female victims] are kept under control by the traffickers and are exploited as domestic servants by the husband but also raped and sexually exploited by fellow nationals of the traffickers."
