The Rooney family in Licolnshire have been conviced of running a shocking modern day slavery ring. Their captives were held in appalling conditions for decades, and forced to work without any money. One of their victims was held for 26 yrs and forced to dig his own grave as a warning if he does not sign a false work contract. The rooneys enjoyed regular holidays to barbados, and some under went cosmetic surgery. 11 gang members were convicted in a court in Nottingham, and the full scale of their shocking crimes can now only be reported after a ruling at nottingham court. Operating from sites in Lincolnshire, they targetted the  homeless or people with learning difficulties. 18 victims aged between 18 - 64 were freed afdter raids by the police and the national crime agency in 2014. The gang also targetted elderly homeowners forcing thme to sign over property. The gang would look for targets on the streets, and in shelters offering them false hope of a better life.
Voilence was often used against the victims and one even died with his family not knowing anythnig about it..

They will be sentenced later...

The NCA say there are cases in every major city in the uk, and they are now assisting police in over 300 live operations as I report this to you now!!
The most common nationalities caught up in this are from Vietnam, Nigeria, and eastern Europe. Most are believed to be working on construction sites with little pay, and forced to live in terrible conditions. Public have been asked to be aware and report anything they might deem suspicious to the police...

Previously we commented on such cases that happened in China - disabled or mentally retarded people kept as slaves by kiln owners. But clearly the crime is committed in the whole world.
