Seven people from the same family have been sentenced to 66 years in prison between them after they were convicted of trafficking three Polish nationals into the UK.

We continue to hear from some people who simply do not believe that Human Trafficking exists.

Thank you to City Hearts, who were instrumental in the rescue of three Polish people Trafficked into the UK and the successful prosecution and jailing of seven Traffickers.

Extract:

The three victims were lured to the UK with the promise of paid work and a better life.

As soon as they arrived, their identity documents were confiscated

The victims were subjected to a catalogue of violence and degrading treatment.

One night, having been held captive for approximately 12 months, one of the victims managed to escape, subsequently living on the streets for four months before finding assistance from a charity called City Hearts.

Sound familiar?
