The international investigation team has brought a human trafficking gang from Slovakia to justice in Glasgow, the Slovak police informed on Facebook.
Four gang members have been sentenced in Scotland. Three of them, Vojtech G., Jana Š., and Rastislav A., come from Slovakia. The High Court in Glasgow sentenced them to 28 years in total, as reported by the GlasgowLive website.
“Today's sentencing is a vindication for those women who were victims of this criminal gang and of their bravery in telling us about their horrific experiences,” Police Scotland wrote on Facebook.
Four men and two women have also ended up in court in Slovakia for human trafficking as a result of the five-year international Operation Synapsis.
