Kirklees Council’s human trafficking team played a part in smashing a Huddersfield ‘slavery’ gang, it has emerged.
Officials from the council’s safeguarding division uncovered intelligence that allowed police to snare Lockwood woman Nisa Ul Haq and her accomplices.
Ul Haq, a qualified legal worker, was convicted last week of human trafficking using three Huddersfield firms.
A jury at Leeds Crown Court heard the workers were often from a poor background and promised well-paid work in a tailors, giving them the hope of education for their children and a home in the UK.
Slavery is another aspect of Islamic culture our esteemed leaders expect us to accommodate.
