Leaders of trafficking gang face 15 years in prison

THE alleged leaders of a gypsy crime gang accused of trafficking more than 100 people into Ireland for labour exploitation are facing trial in their native Romania.

The four accused face jail sentences of up to 15 years if they are found guilty.

Their arrests followed a joint operation, codenamed Sibling, involving Romanian police and gardai in July last year.

The prosecution allege that the gang netted more than €100,000 from taking a slice of the workers' pay over the previous two years.

America has a non-White immigrant problem which is causing high unemployment as well.
