Conviction for Croydon trafficking ring

 

As the gang who organised the trafficking ring from a Surrey Street cafe are convicted, we would like to use the words of the Acting Chief Crown Prosecutor to sum up the courage of those who were victims.

‘I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the bravery of the victims who gave evidence in this case, one who gave evidence from behind a screen in the UK, and two others who gave evidence via a live video-feed from Hungary. We know how incredibly difficult it was for them, especially as we know that the reach of this criminal group extends back to Hungary. It has not been easy for them, but we hope that today’s verdict brings them justice and allows them to now move on with their lives.”

Wonderful news of a conviction for those who often escape.
