Default UK Pensioner charged with trafficking and exploitation

In the UK a woman has been convicted for trafficking and exploitation- here in Dubai it sounds like the normal life of a maid...

Khan arranged a domestic service visa and promised to pay her 120,000 shillings (£21) a month into her Tanzanian bank account and £10 a month pocket money in London.

Mrs Mruke, desperate to fund her daughter Zakia's college education, agreed.

But when she got to London, Khan took her passport away, forced her to sleep on the kitchen floor and gave her two slices of bread a day for food. Her clothes were kept in a garden shed.

Between 6am and midnight each day, Mrs Mruke was expected to be at the beck and call of Khan, who would ring a bell when she or her two grown-up, disabled children wanted something.

Metropolitan Police
Sometimes she would even be woken during the night to take Khan's son out for a walk.

Mrs Mruke did not get a single day off in four years.

Khan, eh? Any relations of the Mongolia Khans?

Appalling.

Read that last night, I hope she goes to jail - utterly disgusting.

No relation to any real Mongols but evidently trying to emulate a certain famous Mongol from the 12th Century

It's the tip of a mighty iceberg I fear.

I guess she has not quite understood that what is acceptable in some places, is not accepetable in the UK. Assimilation is severely lacking....
