Philip Farr in successful prosecution of ‘modern day slavery’ matter

25 January 2016

Philip Farr recently concluded a case at King’s Lynn Crown Court which highlighted an offence that is sadly on the increase. Two Lithuaniun nationals Konstantin Sasmurin, 34, and Linus Tatautus, 31 were found guilty of trafficking two men, found working in food processing plants, who were paid just £20 over four months. The victims were brought to Great Yarmouth with the promise of food, work and accommodation.

Dave Powell, investigating officer with the Gangmasters Licensing Authority, said: "Those two workers were extremely vulnerable - they were preyed upon and exploited by perpetrators who showed not a care for their welfare and were driven solely by financial greed."
