Even [!] Lithuania Thinks the UK has Gone Too Far with its Good ol' Slavery
The public prosecutors office in Klaipeda has recently finished an investigation of numerous instances of human trafficking slavery and filled all related documents to the Lithuanian court, notes BaltNews Among the accused one can come across a married couple from the United Kingdom and a Lithuanian resident, who deceived into believing that he could assist them in emigrating to the UK, only to sell them latter on into slavery to his above mentioned English accomplices.

Those successfully tricked were smuggled to the UK, without any command of English and no resources to support themselves with. With no social guarantees, long night shifts, with no rest to enjoy, had wages than were far inferior to those that are described as minimal in Britain. Kept in slams [sic], with no medical assistance to right [sic] home about, some of those modern slaves received no pay at all.
