Pic by Northwest Newspix.BREAKING NEWS: Armed Gardai have carried out raids on apartments in Letterkenny in connection with recent claims of forced labour in the town.The raids were carried out this afternoon at apartments in the Fortwell complex off the town’s Main Street.Nobody was arrested during the raids but a number of items are believed to have been seized as part of the operation. Members of the armed Regional Response Unit as well as uninformed officers and detectives took part in the raids.However, Gardai are remaining tight-lipped about the operation.Earlier this month a number of young men were moved into the care of the HSE after it was revealed they were working for as little as €5 each day.The men, who have very little English, were all living together in cramped conditions and we working 14 hour days. One of the young men contacted the Romanian Embassy to complain about their situation and a Garda investigation was launched.Gardai then swooped on a number of business premises in Letterkenny following a surveillance operation.The men have since been reunited with their families.At the time Garda Inspector Pat O’Donnell said the men, aged in their early 20s and 50s, were delighted t see the arrival of Gardai.He described the men’s plight as “modern day slavery.” Inspector O’Donnell also said that he expected arrests to be made in follow-up operations.It is understood that Gardai are working in close co-operation with Interpol in their attempts to bring the organisers of the force labour ring to court.Today’s raids took a number of hours and are believed to be part of an overall investigation against local organised crime.GARDAI CARRY OUT RAIDS IN CONNECTION WITH ‘SLAVE LABOUR’ INVESTIGATION was last modified: September 29th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalforced labourGardaiinvestigationlast_img read more
