A father and two sons appeared in court in Cwmbran today charged with keeping slaves on their family farm.
Daniel Doran, 66, and his sons David Doran, 42, and Thomas Doran, 36, are accused of slavery at their horse farm in the countryside between Cardiff and Newport.
The three men face charges of false imprisonment, conspiracy to hold a person in servitude and conspiracy to require a person to perform forced labour. Youngest son Thomas Doran is also charged with kidnapping by force or fraud.
Their arrests follow a police raid at a farm at Marshfield, near Newport where a Polish man was rescued living in squalid conditions.
All three are now due to appear at Newport Crown Court on 3rd October.
