夫妻倆 "強迫婦女工作而沒有適當的報酬

36歲的John Izekor和29歲的Precious Izekor對他們的管家和保姆的移民身份一無所知,並拒絕歸還她的護照或向她支付約定的費用。

Izekors夫婦在Lisburn的Ashmount花園有一個地址,儘管貝爾法斯特刑事法庭聽說他們最近在家裡受到攻擊後被迫搬家。

法官判處這對夫婦兩年監禁,緩期兩年執行。

他們的受害者是一名33歲的人,曾與他們一起住在貝爾法斯特東部的Castlereagh Place,被迫在沒有適當報酬的情況下工作。

當她來到英國時,她的僱主曾向內政部承諾,她將得到更高的報酬。

法庭上明確指出,這名婦女沒有被販賣,也不是現代奴隸,她從未受到過人身攻擊。

當一位內政部官員到貝爾法斯特的房子裡與她交談時,他被騙了,並在沒有見到受害者的情況下被打發走。

由於希望被允許留在英國,受害者與這個家庭一起生活和工作,但無法獲得她的護照或文件。


John Izekor, 36, and Precious Izekor, 29, kept their housekeeper and nanny in the dark about her immigration status and refused to return her passport or pay her an agreed rate.

The Izekors have an address in Ashmount Gardens in Lisburn, although Belfast Crown Court heard they had recently been forced to move after their home was attacked.

The judge sentenced the couple to two years in prison, which has been suspended for two years.

Their victim, a 33-year-old who had lived with them in Castlereagh Place in east Belfast, was forced to work without proper payment.

When she came to the UK her employers had promised the Home Office that she would be paid a much higher rate.

It was made clear in court the woman was not trafficked or a modern slave and she was never physically assaulted.

When a Home Office official visited the house in Belfast to speak to her, he was lied to and sent away without being able to see the victim.

Hoping to be allowed to stay in the UK, the victim lived and worked with the family with no access to her passport or documents.
