Brits Face Trafficking Trial

Two British citizens are to face prosecution in a Swedish court in the southern city of Malmö for trafficking. They are to have exploited 3 fellow Brits in the construction industry, paying them so little and so irregularly that they couldn't afford to get away.

Prosecutors say the 3 victims had been both unemployed and homeless in the UK before being taken to the Netherlands and Sweden to work as labourers, where they were forced to live in a dilapidated mobile home.
