Three men charged in slavery inquiry

Three men arrested in slavery raids across South Wales on Monday have been charged by Gwent Police.

Thomas Doran, 66, Daniel Doran, 42, David Daniel Doran, 36, have been charged with false imprisonment, conspiracy to hold a person in servitude and conspiracy to require a person to perform forced or compulsory labour.

Thomas Doran has also been charged with kidnapping by fraud.

They have been remanded in custody and will appear before magistrates at Cwmbran tomorrow.

A 42 year old woman also arrested on Monday has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Detective Superintendent Paul Griffiths said:

“Whilst this is a welcome development, this fast moving investigation continues and officers remain at the site in the Marshfield area. I would appeal for anyone who may have any information to contact the Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111".

The three men from the St Bride’s area arrested yesterday on suspicion of slavery and servitude offences remain in police custody.

It comes after a 60-year-old British man was discovered after a raid on a farm at St Brides near Newport yesterday. On Monday, a Polish man living in poor conditions was found on a farm in nearby Peterstone when 100 officers from Gwent police carried out a series of dawn raids.
