UK: TRAFFICKED YOUTHS FORCED TO WORK IN CANNABIS FACTORY AWARDED DAMAGES

On 16 February, Joshua Rosenberg in his great blog reported that 2 Vietnamese men who were trafficked to the UK as youths and then forced to work as gardeners in cannabis factories more than a decade ago have won their claims against the UK Government at the European Court of Human Rights (£25,000 each, plus £20,000 costs).  Their lawyers had argued that, as victims of trafficking, they should not have been prosecuted for operating the cannabis operation something that they had been forced into doing.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
