New laws which make it easier to prosecute those who exploit some of the most vulnerable people in society are about to come in to effect.
The new offence of holding another person in slavery or servitude, or requiring another person to perform forced or compulsory labour, is set out in the Coroners and Justice Act 2009. Those found guilty face a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison.
You mean slavery hasn't been illegal for the last 177 years?! What a fucking missed opportunity that's been then!
