Romanian couple arrested for gangmaster offences at salad processing factory

A Romanian couple have been arrested on suspicion of modern slavery and gangmaster offences at a salad processing factory.

 

The duo – a 30-year-old male and his 32-year-old partner – were arrested by Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) officers earlier this morning (February 5) at a detached property in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

 

Officers also recovered six workers from the house who had been brought to the UK by the couple and forced to work in the factory. Enquiries are ongoing.

GLAA senior investigating officer Tony Byrne said: “This once again demonstrates the GLAA’s commitment to using our enhanced remit to investigate reported instances of modern slavery while remaining true to our founding principle of protecting vulnerable workers from exploitation.”

 

Investigators from the Government authority, which protects vulnerable workers from exploitation, are being assisted on the operation by Cambridgeshire Police and the National Crime Agency.

 

The British Red Cross has also been on standby for additional welfare support for the alleged victims.
