Potential trafficking victims urged to come forward

Police have urged potential human trafficking victims to seek help after two people were jailed today for trafficking offences.

Human trafficking destroys lives, its effects damage communities and it is something we will not tolerate here in Cardiff.

Thankfully these two victims are now back safe and well with their families.

We work very closely with partner agencies such as Safer Wales, the Crown Prosecution Service and, in this case the local charity BAWSO, to provide victims with all the support they need.

It is understandable that victims of trafficking are frightened and feel vulnerable but we hope highlighting the outcome of this investigation will encourage any other victims to seek help and contact police.

– Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Simon Maal, South Wales Police
