Trafficking: Men Charged

Four men have been charged with conspiring to traffic women into the UK, following police raids in London and Luton.

Police think a group of men promised receptionist jobs to women from Hungary, but forced them into prostitution when they arrived.

Vishal Chaudhary, 33, of Tower Hamlets, east London; Hungarians Attila Kovacs, 32, and Peter Berki, both of Enfield, north London; and Ibrahim Mosa, 31, a Hungarian from Wood Green, north London, face allegations stretching back more than six years.

They are charged with conspiracy to traffic people into the UK for sexual exploitation and prostitution, and conspiracy to control prostitution to make a gain, Scotland Yard said.

They were arrested after raids at suspected brothels in Telford Road and Ashfield Parade, Enfield, north London.

Four other addresses in the area were also searched. They were in Park View Gardens, Barnet; Highview Gardens, Enfield; Mayes Road, Haringey and a business in Finchley Road, Camden.

Other locations in Peninsula Square, Tower Hamlets, east London; and Butely Road, Luton, Bedfordshire, were also raided.

Victims of trafficking are urged to call the Metropolitan Police's 24-hour helpline on 0800 783 2589.
